Arkansas prepares for Saturday spring game

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – The University of Arkansas football team continued its final week of spring practice Wednesday inside Donald W. Reynolds Razorback Stadium. Arkansas’ afternoon workout session included a number of plays pitting UA’s offense against its defense. The Razorbacks will practice again Friday as the anticipation grows for Saturday’s Red-White Spring Game.

Head coach Bobby Petrino, entering his fourth season leading the Razorbacks, met the media following the practice, expressing his excitement for Saturday’s game.

"It will give our players the excitement to go on a national stage again," Coach Petrino said. "We do need to have the stadium filled up. That’s what we want to get, people in the stands and filled up so that everyone that watches it sees the passion we have for football in the state of Arkansas."

General admission to the spring game is free. The Red-White Spring Game is part of the Woo Pig Spring Weekend. For $35, fans can purchase the Woo Pig Spring Weekend package that includes a reserved ticket to all three baseball games ($30 value), general admission seating for all three softball games ($12 value) and exclusive access to the South Outdoor Club seating area for the spring football game.

The annual spring game will be televised nationally for the first time by ESPN at 3 p.m. The game will re-air April 17 on ESPNU at 5 p.m.

UA is scheduled to wrap up spring practice with workouts on Friday leading into the Red-White Spring Game on Saturday. The practice schedule is subject to change and fans are encouraged to check ArkansasRazorabacks.com daily for updated dates and times, along with post-practice reports.
