FAYETTEVILLE – The 18th-ranked University of Arkansas football team held practice inside Walker Pavilion Wednesday afternoon as it continued to prepare for Saturday’s Southwest Classic against No. 14 Texas A&M inside Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas.
Defensive coordinator and secondary coach Willy Robinson commented that he was pleased with the progress his defense has made in practice this week.

Coach Robinson discussed the process of changing defensive assignments and was encouraged by the response of his defensive players.
"The fact is, we keep it simple," Coach Robinson said. "We make sure everybody knows their assignments."
