Oklahoma's Defensive Line Hopes to Set the "Tone"

Running back Lache Seastrunk #25 of the Baylor Bears runs around defensive end Chuka Ndulue #98 of the Oklahoma Sooners November 10, 2012 at Gaylord Family-Oklahoma Memorial Stadium in Norman, Oklahoma. Oklahoma defeated Baylor 42-34.
Junior defensive lineman Chuka Ndulue said his unit's goal is to always “set the tone for the rest of the team.”

“Every game, every practice, every whatever we do as a D-line … It starts with us up front,” Ndulue said. “If we can't stop the run or get after the quarterback it's going to be a long day for us.”

Ndulue was a starting defensive end last season, but switched to tackle during the spring because of depth concerns there. He's capable of playing in both spots, but hasn't started a game yet this year in the Sooners' three-man front.

For all the concerns about the Oklahoma defensive line entering the season, the unit has been solid thus far, getting good pressure on opposing quarterbacks. (The Oklahoman)
