FAYETTEVILLE - University of Arkansas head football coach Bret Bielema met with members of the media on Monday to recap last weekend's SEC road contest against Florida, while also looking ahead to this weekend's matchup with South Carolina inside Donald W. Reynolds Razorback Stadium.
Coach Bielema said that he and his staff came away encouraged by the progress being made and continued fight displayed from the Razorbacks against another top opponent in the Gators.
"Winning is a process," Coach Bielema said. "It's a process to get through a four-quarter game and we're getting there. Each week I can see games where we're getting to where we need to be. This week gives us another opportunity and it should be a tremendous opportunity."
The Razorbacks have continued to maintain a positive and determined mentality as they work through a stretch of four straight opponents that were ranked in the top 10 of the preseason AP poll.
"I think they'll bounce back well," Coach Bielema said. "We turn the page on Sundays. We make our corrections, we come in and meet, and I kind of brought them back in for a meeting and closed the book there and moved ourselves into South Carolina mode. We'll come back."
Another chance for improvement and opportunity awaiting Arkansas this weekend with South Carolina visiting, Coach Bielema and the Razorbacks expect Saturday's game to bring out a tremendous home atmosphere.
"The kids are excited about South Carolina," Coach Bielema said. "It's homecoming week. That's something I really preach to our kids that you're going to have a great crowd. It's an early game, but I know they'll show up and obviosuly South Carolina is a very good opponent. It should be a tremendous atmosphere."
Kickoff for Saturday's game against South Carolina inside Donald W. Reynolds Razorback Stadium in Fayetteville is scheduled for 11:21 a.m., and the game will be available across the country on SEC TV.
