SEATTLE, Wash. - Jonathan Stewart and Andre Crenshaw each ran for two touchdowns tonight as seventh-ranked Oregon beat Washington 55-34. It was the fifth loss in a row for the Huskies. All the losses were to teams who were ranked in the top 12 at one point this season.
Washington's redshirt freshman quarterback, Jake Locker, had the best passing night of his young career, throwing for 257 and four scores, but Washington's defense could never slow down the Ducks' potent spread offense.
Stewart rushed for a career-high 251 yards, the first Oregon back to rush for 200 yards since Ontario Smith set a school record with 285 yards against Washington State in 2001.
The Ducks finished with a school-record 465 rushing yards.
It was the 100th meeting between the two schools, and the fourth time in a row the Ducks have beat the Huskies.
The Huskies trailed 24-17 at halftime, but tied it at 31 when Locker and Marcel Reece connected for a 38-yard score. But Crenshaw then added his second scoring run, and Matt Evenson kicked a 47-yard field goal to give the Ducks a 10-point cushion, and Dennis Dixon capped the win with his seventh rushing touchdown of the season.
