Hogs’ Defense Prepare for the Broncos
BY ANDRES FOCIL
FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – The Razorbacks continued to prepare for Boise State with a short practice in full pads on the practice fields behind Donald W. Reynolds Razorback Stadium.
“Our guys are anxious and ready to play,” Arkansas head coach Houston Nutt said. “I can’t wait to get them out there. They’ve worked hard and you can tell there are a few jitters today.”
Nutt explained how he needs the offense and defense to perform in order succeed against the Broncos and was pleased with their performances at today’s practice.
“Defense ran around knowing their assignments very well,” Nutt said. “They’re going to have to do that with all shifts and movements and the problems Boise State presents. Offensively I want to take care of the ball and I want to be a team with no penalties. You see a lot of penalties of 12 men on the field and delay of the game early on. We just want to take care of all those little things, so you don’t beat yourself.”
The Arkansas defense will also have to be prepared for the passing offense and running game of Boise State.
“We know that Boise State loves to throw the football,” Nutt said. “They trust their quarterbacks and they trust their receivers. They try to get Brock Forsey the ball, run or pass. I think they threw 36 times, so they’re going to run it and throw it.”
The Razorbacks will take the field against the Broncos at 6 p.m., on Saturday September 7, in Donald W. Reynolds Razorback Stadium. Arkansas’ next home game will be in Little Rock, Ark., at War Memorial Stadium. They will go head-to-head against South Florida on September 14, at 6 p.m.
