Dixon's left knee appeared to buckle as he tried to plant on an option carry with about 5 minutes to go in the quarter.
Dixon, a leading Heisman Trophy candidate, sprained the same knee against Arizona State on Nov. 3. He wore a brace Thursday night.
Dixon had a 39-yard touchdown run on the Ducks' first possession. He was 5-of-8 for 62 yards and threw an interception in the end zone.
Senior Brady Leaf replaced Dixon.
