Tyree Robinson had two interceptions including a Pick-6 as Oregon beats GSU 61-28

Oregon safety Tyree Robinson had himself a day against Georgia State on Saturday. The redshirt sophomore had a tackle and two interceptions on the day, the first of which he returned 41 yards to the end zone on the third play of the game to give the Ducks an early lead, in a 61-28 win.

 Knowing they would be tested by Georgia State’s passing attack, Robinson said afterwards that he came into the game looking to make big plays and said the defense needs to do more to help take the load off the offense.

 “We have to do our part as a defense and help them score points and I think we did that good today,” he said.

 While the score tells one story, the stats tell another. Oregon continued to show signs of blown coverages, missed tackles and mental errors that have plagued them consistently early in 2015. With Pac-12 play ahead, Robinson acknowledged that the defense needs to improve in all facets, not just in one certain area with Utah up next on the schedule.
