AUDIO: Oregon’s Defense Prepares for a Battle with Khalil Tate and Arizona

Coming off a bye week, Oregon (5-5, 2-5 Pac-12) hosts Khalil Tate and Arizona (7-3, 5-2 Pac-12) on Saturday at 4:00 p.m. at Autzen Stadium. Ever since being inserted into the starting lineup a few weeks into the season, Tate has been one of the more electric players in college football. The Ducks’ defense met with the media before practice on Wednesday to talk about the challenges Tate presents and the overall importance of the final two regular season games of the year. Below are the full interviews.
