FAYETTEVILLE – The University of Arkansas football team continued game week preparation onTuesdayfor its upcoming road game against Rutgers.
Offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach Jim Chaney met with the mediaafter practice anddiscussedthe team’s excitementfor their first road game.
"We had a lot of wrinkles today that we need to work out," Coach Chaney said. "But for the most part they had a great attitude and they are excited to go to Rutgers and play a very good football team. I think the kids understand what is in front of them."
Coach Chaney talked about the loud atmosphere at High Point Solutions Stadium and how the team is preparing for it.
"I think the crowd noise is a major issue," Coach Chaney said. "Coach Bielema wanted to go into the indoor facility and it always helps. It has more of a hollow sound which makes it a lot louder and harderto communicate. We have dabbled with a little bit of it during training camp. Coach would throw some crowd noise on, so it wasn’t the first time. It really didn’t seem to bother us that much."
The Razorbacks (3-0) travel to High Point Solutions Stadium in Piscataway, N.J., this Saturday to face Rutgers (2-1). Kickoff is set for 2:30 p.m. CTand the game will be broadcast on ESPN.
