#11 Oregon 24, #16 California 45

California passed like a Duck, tackled like a Duck and even dressed like a Duck - and the Golden Bears did it all much better than the Oregon. The Bears took control almost from the moment they ran out of the Memorial Stadium tunnel wearing new, garishly gold jerseys. The surprising shirts looked just like something the fashion-forward Ducks would wear - but the Bears backed up that bold color with another series of big plays in their fifth straight blowout victory.

Pac-10 rushing leader Jonathan Stewart managed just 25 yards on 18 carries for the Ducks, whose spread offense never managed to find consistent holes in Cal's defense. Oregon quaterback Dennis Dixon had an awful game, he finished 20-of-35 for 263 yards and three interceptions after throwing just two picks in th Ducks' first four games.

It was the most anticipated game but the most horrible. Not a good weekend as the Ducks lost, so does France who lost to Scotland in Euro qualifier and also Michael Schumacher who did not finish his race in Japan.
