Razorbacks Get Ready for LSU
BY ANDRES FOCIL
FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – On Tuesday afternoon Arkansas continued to prepare for the “Battle of the Boot” and its game against 12th-ranked LSU as the Hogs practiced outside for 90 minutes. Arkansas head coach Houston Nutt was pleased with his team’s effort as the Razorbacks had a fast and physical workout. He also noted the LSU talent UA would be encountering.
“The guys moved around a lot today and went against each other for the speed of the game,” Arkansas head coach Houston Nutt said. “When you’re playing this caliber of a football team you need to see the speed of them, because they’re so fast and big. We have to do a great job on both sides of scrimmage. Our offensive line and our defensive line, in the trenches, have to have their best ball game. This is probably the most talented group on both sides of the ball that we’ve played all year. We had a good one today.”
Nutt pointed out that the Tigers have a tendency to turn the ball over and he is emphasizing to the Razorbacks to take advantage of any fumbles or interceptions and put points on the board.
“They’re leading the league in turnovers and hopefully just one more time, one more game they can keep doing that,” Nutt said. “We always stress that. We need turnovers and two or three or four would be great.”
With the game being played on a Friday Arkansas only has four days to practice, but Nutt has been satisfied in his team’s progress and is confident in their ability to be ready.
“In a short week you always think you haven’t covered enough or haven’t done enough, but they have the same problem too,” Nutt said. “It’s that time of year when everyone is a little sore, but you’re trying to turn things around as quickly as possible and we’ve had good preparation. We have to have two more days of it.”
Arkansas and LSU will face each other on Nov. 26, at 1:30 p.m. at War Memorial Stadium in Little Rock, Ark. The game will be broadcasted live on CBS.
