ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) -- Oregon coach Mike Bellotti posed for a picture on the block M in the middle of the field at Michigan Stadium, a scoreboard looming in the background.

"Make sure you get the score in there," Bellotti said.

Oregon 39, Michigan 7. Another embarrassment for the Wolverines. Another opponent celebrating at the Big House.

A week after getting stunned by Appalachian State, the Wolverines were handed their worst beating since before Bo Schembechler worked the sideline at the Big House.

Dennis Dixon accounted for 368 yards and a career-high four touchdowns, helping the Ducks build a 25-point lead at halftime and cruise to an easy victory.


"It's a good win because I think there were some questions about how Michigan was going to bounce back, and whether we would be competitive," Bellotti said. "I think our players took that to heart."

The Ducks (2-0) beat Houston handily in its opener, then were even more dominant against a once-proud program that boasts the most wins and best winning percentage in college football.

Michigan (0-2) has opened a season with two straight losses at home for the first time since 1959 and has dropped four straight for the first time in four decades.

Unlike the stunning loss to the second-tier Mountaineers, the Wolverines didn't even keep it close against Oregon.

The 32-point setback was Michigan's worst since losing 50-14 at Ohio State in 1968, the season before Schembechler's coaching debut in Ann Arbor.
