Dye Talks UW

October 10, 2018

Oregon linebacker Troy Dye spent time with media on Wednesday discussing the rivalry game. The Ducks are getting closer to hosting the No. 7 ranked team on Saturday for what is being built up as a massive contest in the Pac-12 North.

You can hear his thoughts on the game in the video below. We've also written out most of the interview if you don't wish to watch it.

On preparing for UW:

"Just going out there and playing our defense and just knowing he knows his offense. We gotta play our game and just go out there and do our thing."

On Washington's Offense:

"Just picking up different formations that they use. I mean Washington's known for shifts and trey's and motions to confuse defenses so we just try to pick up as many keys as we can. We've done a pretty good job so far but we still have work to do." 

On Impact of Walk-Thrus & Film:

"The walk-thrus Thursday and Friday will be tremendously huge for us. Film tonight, film tomorrow morning, film Friday morning will be big for us as well." 

On getting pressure on Browning:

"The Pac-12 you have to get pressure on every quarterback. If you look at it from top to bottom all of the Pac-12 quarterbacks are great. They all move well and have tremendous arm strength. With Browning we just have to make him uncomfortable and disrupt his timing to his receivers."

On the big losses to Washington:

"A little bit but we're not really focused on what happened in the past. We're a different team. We're a new organization. And we're trying to push forward. I know guys have it in the back of their head and we're still reminded about it. We're focused on Saturday and trying to go out there and put on a good show."
