Arkansas Wraps up Game Plan for LSU Tigers
BY ANDRES FOCIL
FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – With cold temperatures hitting the Fayetteville area on Wednesday Arkansas moved practice indoors to the Willard and Pat Walker Pavilion. The Razorbacks practiced for one hour and focused on LSU’s special teams.
“We had some good work today and we tried to cover a lot of areas in the kicking game,” Nutt said. “They have an excellent kick coverage and all their special teams have great speed. We have to be at our best in those areas also. It’s been a good week of preparation.”
Before the Hogs travel to Little Rock on Thursday they will hold a brief workout tomorrow morning. Nutt has been satisfied with the team’s preparation and will be looking for another big time play against the Tigers, like Arkansas had in Starkville, Miss., last weekend. A blocked MSU field goal led to a touchdown for the Hogs and gave them the momentum to put up a 24-21 victory.
“It makes a difference and it turned the game around in Starkville,” Nutt said. “You never know when an extra point will make a difference or a blocked punt or blocked field goal. We need some plays like that, it just elevates your team and takes them to another level when you have plays like that.”
Nutt also commented on the progress of senior quarterback Matt Jones.
“We don’t know what speed we’ll be at, but that last game helped him (Matt Jones) sitting in the pocket and if he needs to do that I think he’ll do it,” Nutt said. “I’m hoping he’ll be a little better this week.”
Arkansas and LSU will face each other on Nov. 26, at 1:30 p.m. at War Memorial Stadium in Little Rock, Ark. The game will be broadcasted live on CBS. Under Coach Nutt the Razorbacks are undefeated (17-0) in Little Rock.
