FAYETTEVILLE – The University of Arkansas football team took to the field Tuesday inside Donald W. Reynolds Razorback Stadium for practice in preparation for this weekend’s trip to Auburn. The Razorbacks, ranked 12th in the latest AP poll, are off to head coach Bobby Petrino’s best start at UA with a 4-1 (1-1, SEC) record. The seventh-ranked Tigers sport a 6-0 overall record and are 3-0 in the Southeastern Conference.
Offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach Garrick McGee saw the Razorbacks take the field with a determined attitude for the afternoon session of drills.
"Practice was really good; we’re focused," Coach McGee said. "They understand that this is a huge game. Down there; in their stadium; they are a really good team. This is what the SEC is all about."
The Arkansas offense is leading the SEC in passing offense with an average of 354.0 yards per game. Coach McGee expressed the need to employ a variety of attacks on the offensive side of the ball to ensure further success.
"Running the ball always helps," Coach McGee said. "You get to the point in the game where you don’t need any more points. You need to run the ball and eat up the clock. We’re heading in the right direction, no doubt."
The Razorback-Tiger matchup is set to kick off at 2:30 p.m. on CBS. For more information on Razorback football, please visit ArkansasRazorbacks.com.
