EUGENE, Ore. (AP) - De'Anthony Thomas is an enigma, and No. 2 Oregon would like to keep it that way.

The 5-foot-9, 170-pound running back can confound defenses with his versatility and lightning speed. The trick for the Ducks is to manage Thomas on the field so as to keep opponents guessing while not over-taxing him.

During Oregon's season-opening 66-3 rout of Nicholls State, Thomas rushed for 128 yards and two touchdowns on a career-high 18 carries. Some were surprised that the Ducks ran him so many times, especially against a lower-division opponent.

Thomas says he's just going with the flow, and trying to do what he can to help the Ducks win.

Thomas moved into fourth on Oregon's career list with 38 touchdowns; LaMichael James is first with 58.
