Arkansas Begins Practicing For No. 4 Georgia;
BY ANDRES FOCIL
FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – The Arkansas Razorbacks moved practice indoors Tuesday as they began working on the game plan for the Georgia Bulldogs.
The Razorbacks spent just over an hour and a half inside the Walker Indoor Pavilion preparing for this Saturday’s Southeastern Conference Championship game against the fourth-ranked Bulldogs.
Arkansas head coach Houston Nutt was pleased with the intensity and concentration level of Tuesday’s workout.
“The guys came out here with a good frame of mind today,” Nutt said. “You’ve got to have that when you are getting ready to play a team like Georgia. They are strong in every phase of the game. They have a lot of weapons at every position.”
Nutt praised the Georgia defense which is ranked fourth in total defense in the SEC and 39th in the nation allowing 394.3 yards per game. The Bulldogs are allowing 18.2 points per game this season.
“Johnathan Sullivan and David Pollack really jump out at defensively for Georgia,” Nutt said. “Tony Gilbert is an excellent linebacker and Boss Bailey is a great player too. They are a tough group to score against. They play hard and are very stingy.”
Nutt added the Razorbacks will face a tough environment on the road this weekend in the Georgia Dome.
“It’s like a road game and we’ve played well on the road this season,” Nutt said. “We will need to be extremely focused in the Georgia Dome because the noise level is really loud.”
Arkansas and Georgia kickoff at 5 p.m. CT this Saturday in Atlanta. The game will be televised nationally by CBS.
