SUGAR BOWL: Ben Wilkerson Q&A

LSU's starting center discusses the Tigers first day of practice in the Dome

Any particular points of emphasis in going up against OU defense?

"We're working hard to prepare against this (Oklahoma) defense. We're not trying to do anything special because our scheme is pretty much set to what we want to do. We just have to prepare for this defense. We're working hard, preparing well, lifting, and studying a lot of film to try and get ready for this team. There is nothing really different from what we've done in the past."

Does going up against LSU defense every day in practice help prepare for a defense like OU?

"Definitely. I like to compare our defensive line to their defensive line because their styles are similar. They are fast, strong, can push the pocket and they have a lot of moves. If we work hard against our defense we'll be prepared for their defense."
