Arkansas Focuses on Mississippi States Runnin


FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – Arkansas continued to prepare for its game against Mississippi State and practiced outside for 90 minutes in shoulder pads and shorts. The final 30 minutes of workouts were held in Donald W. Reynolds Razorback Stadium. The Razorbacks spent a majority of their time concentrating on the Bulldogs running game.
“I felt like we had another good day today in preparation for Mississippi State,” Arkansas head coach Houston Nutt said. “Those two tailbacks (Jerious Norwood and Fred Reid) are very scary and we spent a lot of time on their inside runs. The thing they’ve done such a good job of is being able to get those guys free and give them running lanes. They are very fast and a lot like Fred Talley with quick feet and can beat you in wide-open space. We have to make sure that those gaps are covered up. The guys practiced hard today and it’s always good to come in here under the lights. It’s a good atmosphere and the guys moved around well.”
