FAYETTEVILLE – The eighth-ranked University of Arkansas football team returned to the UA practice fields on Wednesday and continued to prepare for its upcoming game against ULM on Saturday inside War Memorial Stadium in Little Rock.
Defensive coordinator and secondary coach Paul Haynes spoke to the media after practice and commented on the focus of the defense in practice.
"We emphasize tackling," Coach Haynes said. "We have to improve our fundamentals and technique. We have to get better every week, and get two percent better every day."
Coach Haynes also talked about what the defense is looking to accomplish in Saturday’s game.
"It comes down to one word – execution," Coach Haynes explained. "We need to do a good job of stopping the run and we need to keep them out of the end zone. I’m excited about this week, our guys are excited about this week, and our expectations are high."
Kickoff for Saturday’s game is set for 6 p.m., and the game will be broadcast on ESPNU.
