Down Goes Dixon
Nov. 15, 2007: Four No. 2 teams in the previous five weeks had lost. Yet new No. 2 Oregon (8-1) didn't have reason to be concerned. Quarterback Dennis Dixon, the leading candidate for the Heisman Trophy, returned from a knee injury to play at Arizona. The Ducks led the Wildcats 8-7 when Dixon attempted to juke linebacker Dane Krogstad. Dixon crumpled, his left ACL gone. The dispirited Ducks lost 34-24. Goodbye, Rose Bowl. So long, Heisman. The Ducks lost their last two regular-season games, too.
