CORVALLIS, Ore. -- The Roses are going to dry up and blow away if Oregon State can't slow down this Oregon offense.

The Ducks, in a bit of a surprise, came out throwing. Then they ran. Both types of attack yielded big big plays.

On their first touchdown drive, quarterback Jeremiah Masoli threw for 69 of the 80 yards.

A few weeks ago, Masoli's passing was drawing boos from his home fans.

Then, after the Beavers cut the Ducks lead to 10-7, Jeremiah Johnson got great blocking on the perimeter and sprinted 79 yards to the Beavers 8-yard line. His sidekick, LeGarrette Blount, rumbled in on the next play to make it 17-7.

The Ducks owned a 198-88 advantage in total yards in the first quarter.

Rose Bowl dreams won't survive that.
