Hogs Return To Practice Fields After Victory O
BY ANDRES FOCIL
FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – Gray skies and a cold, blistering wind greeted the Arkansas Razorbacks as they practiced for the first time since their 10-7 upset victory over the South Carolina Gamecocks on Saturday.
The Razorbacks spent an hour on the practice fields working on team and individual drills. The Hogs will practice again Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday as they head into their first off weekend of the season.
Arkansas head coach Houston Nutt noted the Razorbacks’ enthusiasm during Monday’s workout.
“It was good to get back out here after a win,” Nutt said. “Everybody was working hard and up tempo.”
Nutt added the Razorbacks needed to continue to work on eliminating penalties and costly turnovers.
“After watching the game again, you can tell it was just a monumental effort by our players,” Nutt said. “We corrected a lot of things, but we still have a long way to go. We had a good attitude and work ethic last week that helped us get prepared to win. And that is the key.”
Nutt also commented on the status of quarterback Zak Clark who was slightly banged up during the South Carolina game.
“Zak is just a little nicked up right now,” Nutt said. “It was on a play where he scrambled out and was taken down from behind. It was exactly how he got hurt against them last year. But, he came out of it alright this time.”
The Razorbacks will have two weeks to prepare for their next opponent, the Auburn Tigers. Arkansas will host the Southeastern Conference Western Division leaders at Donald W. Reynolds Razorback Stadium on Saturday, Oct. 27.
The game will kickoff at 11:30 a.m. and will be televised regionally by Jefferson-Pilot.
