#18 Oregon 34, #15 Oklahoma 33

Oregon won for the first time in seven meetings over Oklahoma and avenged their Holiday Bowl 2005 defeat, in front of the record crowd of 59,260 at Autzen Stadium. Dennis Dixon and No. 18 Oregon rallied for two touchdowns in the final 72 seconds and the Ducks blocked a field goal on the final play to seal a wild 34-33 victory over No. 15 Oklahoma on Saturday.

Dixon's 16-yard keeper with 1:12 left brought the Ducks within 33-27 and set up the onside kick attempt. The Ducks (3-0) recovered the kick on their own 48, with 1:02 to go. After a pass interference call on Oklahoma again had Sooners coach Bob Stoops shaking his head on the sideline, Dixon threw a 23-yard TD pass to Brian Paysinger with 46 seconds to give Oregon the lead.

Oklahoma wasn't done, though, as Reggie Smith returned a squib kick 55 yards to the Ducks' 27. With no timeouts the Sooners ran one play, run into the line by Adrian Peterson, then spiked the ball with a second left. Garrett Hartley's 44-yard field-goal attempt wasn't high enough to clear the line and the Ducks celebrated.

I almost went to sleep when Ducks were trailing by 13 points with only 72 seconds left. I was fortunate enough to stay awake for 4 hours (3.30am to 7.30am) to witness one of the greatest comeback I've ever seen). Go Ducks!!!

Betul ya...control or to be controlled? I wonder how open a dialog it cud be when come to cabinet or party officials meeting. Wouldn't any members dare to "sound" or voice an opinion? What happened to all the think tanks?
