It's fitting that Thomas Tyner's nickname is Dash.
The freshman running back made his highly anticipated debut for No. 2 Oregon last weekend against Virginia and scored the first time he was handed the ball.
Oregon went on to defeat the Cavaliers 59-10 and Tyner had a coming out party as the latest speedster for the Ducks' vaunted offense.
The Ducks introduced Tyner late in the game. He first scored on a 3-yard run to make it 52-10, then added a 31-yard touchdown dash for the final margin. He only carried the ball four times, gaining 51 yards.
