Ducks Snap Skid, Upend ASU 54-35

Just when you thought the Duck defense was going to give up another touchdown, safety Tyree Robinson had other plans. It’s been a rough season for the Oregon defenders to say the least, but Robinson’s 84-yard interception return set up the Ducks final touchdown and sealed a big 54-35 win over Arizona State Saturday night […]
