FAYETTEVILLE – The University of Arkansas football team practiced Wednesday in continued preparation for this weekend’s Homecoming game against South Carolina. After practice, defensive coordinator Chris Ash met with the media and addressed building depth on the defensive side.
"We’ve done everything we can to build depth," Coach Ash said. "We’ve brought guys along and developed them so that they can be prepared when situtations arise where a player goes down. Certainly the defensive line has the most experience in terms of guys that have played."
Coach Ash also talked about the play of the linebacking trio of senior Jarrett Lake and juniors Braylon Mitchell and Martrell Spaight.
"Saturday, at least with our run defense, that’s probably the best they’ve played this season," Coach Ash said. "I think we finally found the right mix of guys. Now it’s just a matter of them playing more and more together. They’ll get better with that consistency."
Kickoff for Saturday’s game against South Carolina inside Donald W. Reynolds Razorback Stadium is scheduled for 11:21 a.m., and the game will be available across the country on SEC TV. For a complete listing of affiliates airing this week’s game click here.
