Dennis Dixon completed a five-yard scoring pass to Jaison Williams on the first possession for the first string. Brian Paysinger took a pitch and ran 41 yards for a touchdown, Andiel Brown ran for a 29-yard score and Nathan Costa threw a pretty 25-yard touchdown pass to Rory Cavaille.
Oregon’s defense was slow early on but rallied late, keeping the offense off the scoreboard for three straight attempts at two-point conversions. Reserve end Brandon Bair led the unit with seven tackles, his second straight solid scrimmage.
Punter Josh Syria also had a strong day.
