FAYETTEVILLE - The University of Arkansas football team opened the final week of spring practice Tuesday inside Donald W. Reynolds Razorback Stadium. Arkansas held an afternoon workout session and will continue drills on Wednesday leading up to Saturday's Red-White Spring Game.
Defensive coordinator and secondary coach Willy Robinson met the media following practice. He emphasized how much he's enjoyed the atmosphere created by Razorback fans at the annual spring game since his arrival in Fayetteville.
"I think we've had great fan support at our spring games these last three years," Coach Robinson said. "The fact that we're on national television, the more fans that can turn out for that event, obviously they'll see the electricity that our fans bring. Everybody's excited about football being around the corner."
General admission to the spring game is free. The Red-White Spring Game is part of the Woo Pig Spring Weekend. For $35, fans can purchase the Woo Pig Spring Weekend package that includes a reserved ticket to all three baseball games ($30 value), general admission seating for all three softball games ($12 value) and exclusive access to the South Outdoor Club seating area for the spring football game.
