Saturday, defensive end KeShun Freeman said that players were responding to teaching from defensive coordinator Ted Roof to wrap up ball carriers.
“It’s not always about making the big hit, but you get the person on the ground when you get there,” he said.
Safety A.J. Gray said that the defense missed five tackles.
“I feel the whole defense is playing good as a unit,” he said.
The Yellow Jackets likely will have an even greater challenge Saturday against North Carolina, whose offense spreads the field in an attempt to create one-on-one matchups.
