TWTW: Oregon Puts The Hammer Down On Stanford

((HT: KVAL-TV Eugene))

Darron Thomas threw for 238 yards and three TD's to lead Oregon to a 52-31 victory over 9th-ranked Stanford.

The Ducks, now 5-0, fell behind 21-3 in the first quarter, but forced two turnovers in the second half to flip the script in the Ducks favor. LaMichael James ran for 257 yards and three touchdowns.

It was Oregon's 13th straight win at Autzen Stadium and 10th consecutive Pac-10 win.
The Cardinal, dropping to 4-1, have not won a game while ranked in the top 10 since 1970.

Saturday's game was the first time Oregon and Stanford have faced each other as ranked teams. The Cardinal have not started a season 5-0 since 1951, when they won the then-Pacific Coast Conference and a shot at the Rose Bowl.
