Watch: Colorado State LB Tre Thomas intercepts Oregon State pass, scores first pick six of season
The 2017 college football season was only a few hours old when Colorado State linebacker Tre Thomas gave the Rams a two-touchdown lead in the third quarter with a pick six – the first in FBS play this season.
Oregon State quarterback Jake Luton's intended pass on a crossing route over the middle was tipped by wide receiver Isaiah Hodgins and scooped up by Thomas, who ran 44 yards for the touchdown.
The touchdown gave Colorado State a 34-20 lead over Oregon State in the first game at the Rams' new on-campus stadium. Colorado State followed up Thomas' interception with another interception on Oregon State's next drive.
