Clark and Razorbacks Ready to Take on Georgia
BY ANDRES FOCIL
FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – The Arkansas Razorbacks put the finishing touches on the game plan for Saturday’s nationally televised showdown with the Georgia Bulldogs with an hour and a half workout Thursday afternoon.
Arkansas defensive coordinator John Thompson was pleased with the Hogs’ effort during practice, particularly with the defense.
“This was a little different look for our defense today,” Thompson said. “We threw a lot of no huddle at them and really picked up the pace because it’s going to be so fast on Saturday. I think we did a good job with that today.”
Thompson added the Razorbacks have spent the week preparing for the quick-paced Georgia offensive attack.
“This has been an interesting week,” Thompson said. “We’ve worked on the no-huddle and the different looks Georgia gives you. We’ve made some mistakes, but that’s what practice is for, to work those out before you get to Saturday.”
Thompson also commented on the play of quarterback Zak Clark who will get the starting nod in place of the injured Ryan Sorahan.
“I thought Zak looked great out there today,” Thompson said. “He did a good job running the two-minute drill at the end of practice and really moved the ball down the field.”
The Razorbacks welcomed cornerback Harold Harris back to the practice field after he was cleared to play today.
“It was good to have Harold out there,” Thompson said. “He was cleared academically and it will really help us to have him back. We’re glad that he is back out there. He will travel with us this weekend, although he probably won’t play.”
The Razorbacks and Bulldogs will kickoff at 5:30 p.m. CT at Sanford Stadium in Athens this Saturday. The game will be televised by ESPN2.
