First Quarter Recap

The Ducks kicked off the 2006-2007 football season in grand fashion on a beautiful day at Autzen Stadium in front of a packed house.

The Ducks kicked off the 2006-7 season on a beautiful day at Autzen with a quick scoring drive off the opening possession. On the first play from scrimmage, the Ducks dodged a huge bullet as Brian Paysinger fumbled on the first play from scrimmage. After review, the play was ruled a forward pass and an incompletion. On the same drive, Dixon and the rushing attack led by Jonathan Stewart and Jeremiah Johnson marched all the way down the field and into field goal range. Martinez gives the Ducks the first points of the season with a 35 yrd field goal.

13 plays, 62 yards Oregon 3, Stanford 0

The defense got its feet wet early as well as Stanford drove down the field only to turn the ball over on downs after going for it on 4th and 3.

Penalties hampered the Ducks both on offense and defense in the first quarter and gave Stanford a field goal opportunity which Zagory was able to knock through from 34 yards out.

9 plays, 63 yards Oregon 3, Stanford 3

Jonathan Stewart looked very impressive in the first quarter finding many big holes and hitting them with speed and power. He finished the first quarter with 7 rushes for 79 yards. Garren Strong led all Duck receivers with 3 grabs for 34 yards.
