Razorbacks Continue Preparations for Homecomin
BY ANDRES FOCIL
FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – The Arkansas Razorbacks spent an hour and a half on the practice fields Wednesday working on the game plan for this Saturday’s homecoming game against the Central Florida Golden Knights.
Razorback head coach Houston Nutt said the team is focused on the task at hand and knows the Golden Knights present a formidable challenge.
“They are very talented,” Nutt said. “We can not take anything for granted and look past them. They are used to going into other team’s stadiums and playing in front of their fans. It doesn’t phase them, so we have to be prepared.”
Nutt added that the homecoming festivities will add to the significance of the game.
“Homecoming is always a special time for us,” Nutt said. “A lot of former Razorbacks and students come back and they will get a chance to see the new additions to the stadium and find their name on the walk by Old Main. There is nothing like it anywhere. We are looking forward to a great crowd at the game who will make a lot of noise. Hopefully, we will give them a good show.”
The Razorbacks are riding a four game winning streak after defeating Ole Miss in seven overtimes last weekend. The Hogs currently stand at 5-3 overall and 3-3 in the Southeastern Conference after beginning the season 1-3.
Nutt said the leadership of the seniors has helped this year’s team overcome the rough start to the season.
“You have to give credit to the seniors,” Nutt said. “They have kept the team together and kept everybody believing. That’s what it is about and why football is a great game. You are going to get knocked down sometimes, but you just keep going and fighting. We are doing some good things right now because of that.”
The Hogs and Golden Knights kickoff at 1 p.m. at Donald W Reynolds Razorback Stadium. The game will not be televised.
