Clemens, Oregon rout Washington

first_img A week after a big road win at Arizona State, a loss at home was the last thing Oregon needed. “We don’t want to live in the past, but that was a very big win at ASU, especially on the road,” Clemens said. “But if we come home and lose to Washington, who cares?” AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREWalnut’s Malik Khouzam voted Southern California Boys Athlete of the Week Clemens set an Autzen Stadium record by completing 36 passes – he had no interceptions – and the Ducks (6-1, 1-1 Pac-10) handed Washington (1-5, 0-3) its 11th consecutive league loss. Demetrius Williams had five catches for 92 yards, including a pair of Clemens’ scoring passes. Isaiah Stanback completed 13 of 26 passes for 111 yards and a pair of touchdowns for Washington. He was intercepted once. Washington fell 31-6 to the Ducks last year.

EUGENE, Ore. – There was no letdown for No. 20 Oregon when Washington came to town. Kellen Clemens threw for 425 yards and four touchdowns and the Ducks beat the Huskies 45-21 on Saturday for their second straight decisive win over their northwest rivals. center_img While the Huskies jumped out to an early lead on Stanback’s 26-yard scoring pass to Anthony Russo, Oregon had the next three TDs. Clemens hit Demetrius Williams with a 1-yard pass, then Jaison Williams from 8 yards out. Oregon made it 21-7 when Demetrius Williams pulled down another pass from Clemens, stumbling into the end zone for a 30-yard reception with two Washington defenders trying to pull him down. The Huskies showed some life in the fourth quarter. Stanback found Robert Lewis with a 5-yard touchdown pass with 10:08 to go, and Ty Eriks ran in a 1-yard score some five minutes later to make it 38-21. The Ducks responded with Brian Paysinger’s 5-yard TD run in the final minutes, and Oregon finished with 570 yards in total offense. “I believe this is a setback for our team,” Stanback said. “(Oregon is) a good team.
