KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - LaMichael James ran for 134 yards,
including a 72-yard touchdown, in his first game back after a
one-game suspension and No. 7 Oregon scored 45 consecutive points
to beat Tennessee 48-13 on Saturday night.
James had only 27 yards at halftime after being targeted by the
Volunteers' defense for the entire first half. He started picking
up momentum after the break, rushing for 25 yards on five carries
in the Oregon's first second-half drive. He broke several tackles
on the 72-yard touchdown run on the first play of the subsequent
drive for the Ducks (2-0).
James, who rushed for a Pac-10 freshman record 1,546 yards in
2009, returned to the field after serving his suspension for a
offseason misdemeanor harassment charge.
Tennessee (1-1) went up 13-3 in the first half, which was
delayed an hour by bad weather delay.
