Jonathan Stewart continued to tear up the Stanford Defense and almost single-handedly drove the Duck's offense down the field on his own two feet. After a spectacular 54 yard kick return gave the Ducks great field position, Stewart continued to carry the load all the way down to the 1-yard line where he scored on a quick scamper.
