FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – The Arkansas football team took to the Fred W. Smith Football Center outdoor practice fields Monday, entering the third week of spring practice.
Monday’s practice marked the first of four slated for this week and the eighth of the spring. After going through a 100-play scrimmage Saturday, it was a light day of work as the team practiced just 13 periods in helmets and shoulder pads.
The Razorbacks opened with individual drills before moving to 7-on-7 work, 11-on-11 team drills and situations in which the offense was backed up against their own goal line.
The team also focused more on red zone situations. During Saturday’s red zone reps, junior quarterback Austin Allen threw three touchdown passes. He first found senior wideout Keon Hatcher for an 18-yard score and on the next play hit senior Dominique Reed for a 12-yard touchdown. His final touchdown throw went to redshirt freshman tight end Will Gragg for a 15-yard score.
The Razorbacks will suit up again Tuesday for the ninth practice of the spring.
The next chance for fans to catch the Razorbacks in action is at the annual Red-White Spring Game presented by Contour by Cox on Saturday, April 23. Kickoff is scheduled for noon inside Donald W. Reynolds Razorback Stadium. The event is free and open to the public.
Season tickets are on sale now for the 2016 campaign and can be purchased at the Razorback Ticket Center, by phone at 1-800-982-HOGS (4647) or online.
