Video: More Orange Bowl Interviews

West Virginia's defense has several players who will have to take on bigger roles in the Orange Bowl. We caught up with three of those to get their thoughts on that topic and more.

Wes Tonkery, Jorge Wright and Will Clarke will face varying increases in playing time when the Mountaineers take on Clemson in the 2012 Orange Bowl, and each is taking a different approach to that challenge. Tonkery, who said he's "not nervous...yet" about a possible starting role, is tyring to keep an even keep heading into the contest. Wright, who has done yeoman work during the absence of Josh Taylor, looks for more of the same, but hopes to get a bit of help from Shaq Rowell -- even though the extra time off hasn't fully helped heal his own bumps and bruises. Clarke is likewise up for the challenge on the thin defensive front, but was clearly rejuvenated by his time off.
