Razorbacks Continue Working On Game Plan for O
BY ANDRES FOCIL
FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – The Arkansas Razorbacks spent an hour and a half on the outdoor practice fields in cool, cloudy weather Wednesday working on their game plan for the Ole Miss Rebels.
Arkansas head coach Houston Nutt met with members of the media following the practice session.
“We worked a lot together as a team today,” Nutt said. “We do a lot of the same things as Ole Miss offensively and defensively. I think it’s been good overall.”
Nutt added the Razorbacks have made strides in the injury department this week.
“We’re pretty healthy right now,” Nutt added. “We’re close to being as good as we have all season.”
Despite a four game losing streak that has the Razorbacks at 3-5 overall and 1-4 in the Southeastern Conference, Nutt said the players have been upbeat and spirited this week at practice.
“I’ve been very proud of our seniors,” Nutt said. “This is when you need good leadership and you need guys to step up. Anybody can lead when you’re 8-0, 9-0, but it takes a real man to step up when things are not going right. They have come to work all week.”
The Razorbacks will face an Ole Miss squad that is also 3-5 on the season, but is 2-3 in the SEC. The Rebels are coming off an open week, but have lost two straight and three of their last five.
Both teams face must win situations in order to keep their bowl hopes alive.
Arkansas and Ole Miss kickoff at 11:30 a.m. Saturday. The game will be televised by Jefferson Pilot. The Razorbacks lead the series 26-23-1. The teams first met in 1908. Since 1992, when Arkansas joined the SEC, the teams have split the 12 games with six wins apiece.
