Ducks Roll Wolverines 39 - 7

A week after being upset by Appalachian State, the Wolverines were handed their most-lopsided loss in 39 years as Dennis Dixon and the Ducks cruised 39-7 on Saturday. Dixon accounted for 368 yards and a career-high four touchdowns.

A ton of good things came out of this game. Dixon was awesome, the defense was tough, only 1 turnover (versus 4 that Michigan gave up), the offensive play calling was much better than last week, and a national television audience got to see a Pac-10 team at its best.

Dixon led the way with his arm and feet, throwing for 292 yards and tying a career high with three passing TDs -- to three receivers -- and running for 76 yards and a score. Jonathan Stewart ran for 111 yards and a TD.

Michigan Stadium's aisles filled with fans that had seen enough after Oregon made it 39-7 in the third quarter and the Big House was so quiet that a small pocket of Oregon supporters could be heard chanting: "Let's Go Ducks! Let's Go Ducks!"

Bring on Fresno State next Saturday at Autzen. The fans will give the returning Ducks a standing ovation after this weeks performance!
