Arkansas Polishes Game Plan For Louisiana-Monr
BY ANDRES FOCIL
FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – The Arkansas Razorbacks spent a little more than an hour on the practice fields Thursday afternoon polishing the game plan for the Louisiana-Monroe Indians.
The Razorbacks worked on special teams assignments and team situation drills during the practice session.
Arkansas head coach Houston Nutt said the Hogs had a solid week of practice as they head into their final non-conference game of the season.
“This was a good day of mental work,” Nutt said. “Our defense did an outstanding job today. They chased the ball well and created some turnovers. Hopefully, we’ll be able to carry that into Saturday night.”
Nutt also touched on the injury situation for the Razorbacks.
“(Jeremy) Harrell is a lot better today,” Nutt noted. “Jared Hicks is about the same. We’ll make a decision about Jared at game time, but the majority of reps will be divided up between Payne Hall and Mason Templeton.”
Through the first two games of the season, the Razorbacks have used a variety of players at tailback, a situation Nutt sees benefits in.
“We like all our backs right now,” Nutt said. “They are running hard, holding on to the ball and blocked well. It’s not easy, when you’ve got four good backs like that, to get everybody into the game, but it’s nice to have that variety.”
Arkansas and Louisiana-Monroe kickoff at 6 p.m. at War Memorial Stadium in Little Rock.
