Dennis Dixon threw for two touchdowns and ran for another, Jonathan Stewart ran for 165 yards and No. 19 Oregon defeated Fresno State 52-21 on Saturday. Stewart scored two touchdowns, including an 88-yard dash to the end zone, and the Ducks (3-0) outrushed the Bulldogs 307-60.

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 for 139 yards and running for 59 yards. In Oregon's victory over the Wolverines, Dixon had 368 yards of total offense and four touchdowns. 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 win was Mike Bellotti's 100th as coach at Oregon at the expense of Bulldogs' six straight loss in the series with the Ducks.
