Arkansas prepares for game against Texas A&M

FAYETTEVILLE – The University of Arkansas football team practiced in the Walker Indoor Pavilion on Wednesday as they prepared to travel to College Station, Texas for the first Southeastern Conference matchup on Saturday against Texas A&M.

Defensive coordinator and secondary coach Paul Haynes spoke to the media after practice and discussed the mindset of the team. "We have to be sure we are disciplined in our rushing lanes," Coach Haynes said. "We need to do a good job of staying incoverage. I think we do a good job of rushing the quarterback. The guys have to do a good job of covering and we need to keep mixing it up and challenging the routes." Coach Haynes also commented on the mentality of the team. "We’re focused on getting this football team better," Coach Haynes said. "The players are all for it. They are all in, and they know what we have to do to get better." Kickoff for Saturday’s game is set for 11:21 a.m., and the game will be broadcast on the SEC Network.
