Arkansas Works Out Indoors In Preparation For

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – The Arkansas Razorbacks spent two hours on the practice field Wednesday afternoon with part of the workout indoors in preparation for Saturday’s nationally televised game against the Tennessee Volunteers.
The Razorback offensive unit spent the last portion of practice in the Walker Indoor Pavilion with speakers blaring the Tennessee fight song to prepare for the loud environment of Neyland Stadium in Knoxville.
Arkansas head coach Houston Nutt was pleased with the Hogs’ mental focus, particularly during the indoor session.
“We wanted to get the players ready for the noise level we’ll have this weekend,” Nutt said. “We need everybody on the same page and executing properly. They did a good job. They had good concentration and handled things well.”
Nutt also noted the work of the defense this week.
“They have gotten better everyday since Sunday,” Nutt said. “They came out here and began working on correcting mistakes. It didn’t feel good, a loss isn’t supposed too. But, by Tuesday you’ve got to put it behind you and get back to work and that is what they have done.”
Nutt said the Vols have good size and speed on both sides of the ball and will play a physical style of game.
“They have tremendous athletes,” Nutt said. “They are like any SEC team. There isn’t much difference between Tennessee, Alabama or any other team in the league. They all have outstanding athletes with tremendous ability.”
The Hogs and Vols will kickoff at 6:30 p.m. CT with the game televised by ESPN.
