Q: How impressed have you been with LSU’s offense?
A: They’re a good offense. It’s going to be a great matchup. I saw they scored a lot of points in their last game and against Georgia.
Q: Do you look forward to facing two-back offenses?
A: I love these games. I’m tired of all these spread teams. I love these games where you just react instead of doing all the thinking.
Q: In what areas have they improved from last season?
A: Their quarterback has made great strides. They are very balanced and not just one dimensional running the ball. They throw the ball just as good.
Q: What’s different about Zach Mettenberger this season? He struggled against your defense in 2012.
A: He’s throwing that thing, looking like an NFL quarterback. Last year we played a great game defensively, so it would have been tough for anybody.
Q: Last year’s game against LSU was the first time you played extensively as a true freshman. How huge was that for you?
A: I just saw the physicality that can go on in an SEC game. Having an opportunity to play in a big game like that and get that experience really helped me moving forward.
