One of the few bright spots for the defense this week was defensive tacklet Jarvis Jenkins. Jarvis knows the team has work to do to improve.
“You know we have to work on stopping the run. Some of the first year guys were a little nervous but we are going to get it right and get ready for PC,” said Jenkins.
North Texas running back Lance Dunbar lived up to the preseason hype against the Tigers.
“Oh year, yards after contact. That guy is strong. Everything they said about him is true. It is a credit to him. He had a real good game,” said Jenkins.
What do the Tigers need to improve on for next week?
“We have to stop the run. That is the basis for the defense. If we stop the run then the pass will come. Those guys had too much time to throw. We had five sacks but that still isn’t good enough. We have to get that done,” said Jenkins.
