FAYETTEVILLE - University of Arkansas head football coach John L. Smith met with the media Monday afternoon to discuss the 10th-ranked Razorbacks’ season-opening win against Jacksonville State and preview Saturday’s game against ULM in Little Rock.
Coach Smith commented on the offense’s impressive performance against Jacksonville State and how they took control of the game.
“Once the offense started to get on a roll, the defense could feel it and it carries over, so we go out and make a stop and get it back and get a score,” Coach Smith said. “You just want to keep that rolling as long as you can. It was a great feeling to see the offense take control and do all of that.”
Coach Smith also talked about going to Little Rock to play on Saturday.
“We are looking forward to going to Little Rock,” Coach Smith said. “That’s been great for us. Our kids believe in it. They are excited about it. The walk there and the fans there are as good as it gets. It’s a great atmosphere. We plan on going down there and playing a lot better than we did last week.”
Kickoff for Saturday’s game inside War Memorial Stadium is set for 6 p.m., and the game will be televised on ESPNU.
