While the Tigers showed some positive signs, defensive coordinator John Emerson said the most important thing they must do is eliminate the big plays that haunted them on Friday night.
They also need to stay healthy. Nick Webb missed the second half of Friday’s game with an injury, and the timetable for his return is not yet set.
“It just seems like every time we’re getting better we’re giving a big one up,” he said. “It takes all the momentum away. It’s frustrating. I know they’re frustrated. But they’re playing hard, and sooner or later we have to catch a break.”
