Fresno St. 21 - Oregon 52

This time Dennis Dixon left the dramatics to Jonathan Stewart.

While Dixon threw for two touchdowns and ran for another, Jonathan Stewart ran for 165 yards. Stewart scored two touchdowns, including a flashy 88-yard dash (pictured) to the end zone, and the Ducks (3-0) outrushed the Bulldogs 307-60.

Stewart's 88 yard scoring run was the longest ever at Autzen Stadium, and it was the longest for a Ducks player for a TD since Bob Smith ran 92 yards for a score against Idaho in 1938.

"The sky's the limit right now. This offense is really clicking," Dixon said.

While not posting the gaudy numbers he did in Oregon's 39-7 victory over Michigan the previous weekend, Dixon was solid, completing 14 for 20 passes for 139 yards and running for 59 yards.

The win was Mike Bellotti's 100th as coach at Oregon and the school's suspended mascot even got to watch -- though not from the field.

The Duck, suspended a game for beating up the Houston Cougar in the opener, did make a brief appearance in one of the television booths and received rousing applause from fans at Autzen.

Next week opens Oregon's Pac-10 season with a trip to Stanford.
