Oregon Impresses Pac-10

Oregon (3-0) is averaging 325.67 yards rushing, behind only Navy (378.67) and West Virginia (343.67) in the national rankings. The Ducks seem to be leading a trend in the Pac-10, where rushing numbers are up almost across the board. Overall, Oregon has the top offense in the Pac-10, averaging 519.3 yards and 46.3 points.

Dixon has thrown for 565 yards and seven touchdowns, and is the only quarterback in the Pac-10 who hasn't been intercepted. He's also rushed for 339 yards and three scores. Jonathan Stewart is averaging 114.3 yards rushing, second in the Pac-10, and is the league leader in all-purpose yards with an average of 171.

Oregon (3-0) opens conference play this Saturday at Stanford, which is coming off a 37-0 victory over San Jose State. Jim Harbaugh, the new Cardinal coach, is well aware of Oregon's offensive strength. "I think that's what everybody's trying to figure out -- how to slow them down," Harbaugh said.

Stanford will be hard pressed to stop the "O" train on Saturday!


GO DUCKS!
