No. 24 Oregon Steamrolls Washington, 34-14
Nov. 4, 2006
EUGENE, Ore . (AP) - Jonathan Stewart ran for 159 yards and two touchdowns as No. 24 Oregon rolled up 316 yards on the ground and beat Washington 34-14 on Saturday.
Patrick Chung opened the scoring with a 59-yard punt return for a touchdown and had an interception for Oregon (7-2, 4-2). Dennis Dixon completed 14 of 25 passes for 109 yards for the Ducks, but the Huskies (4-6, 2-5) capitalized on his two interceptions for their only scores.
Dixon has not thrown for more than 150 yards in four straight weeks.
Carl Bonnell threw a 9-yard TD pass to Sonny Shackelford over the top of two Ducks defenders in the corner of the Oregon end zone to tie the game at 7.
After Washington safety Chris Hemphill picked off Dixon less than a minute into the second half, Bonnell threw an 11-yard scoring pass to Quintin Daniels to make it 17-14 - as close as the Huskies would get.
Jeremiah Johnson also ran for a score for Oregon, which has beaten Washington at home three consecutive years.
The Huskies have lost five straight after starting the season 4-1, with their hopes of postseason play dimming.
Washington would have to beat Stanford next week and then No. 25 Washington State in the Apple Cup in Pullman to have any chance at becoming bowl eligible.
