Video: Wilcox's defense must be ready

Sign in or sign up to see this interview with Tennessee defensive coordinator Justin Wilcox as the Vols prepare for the No. 1 LSU Tigers.

Tennessee defensive coordinator Justin Wilcox knows that the LSU Tigers are ranked No. 1 in the nation for a reason.

His young defense will likely get one of their biggest tests of the 2011 season Saturday at 3:30 p.m. EST in Neyland Stadium.

The two-headed monster of LSU running backs Spencer Ware and Michael Ford have combined for 756 yards and 11 touchdowns. The two have an average of 4.6 yards per carry. The Tigers are ranked No. 38 overall in the country in rushing with 183 yards per game.

The violent downhill running attack may again force the Vols to get safety help in the running game from Prentiss Waggner and leave the Tennessee corners out on an island leaving them open for possible exposure.

Watch this video interview with Wilcox to see how the Volunteer plan to combat the grandest team in the land.
