FAYETTEVILLE – The University of Arkansas football team practiced Tuesday inside the Walker Pavilion in preparation for Saturday’s 11:21 a.m. kickoff against Ole Miss inside Donald W. Reynolds Razorback Stadium. The Razorbacks, ranked 21st in the latest AP poll, hold a 4-2 (1-2, SEC) record. The Rebels are 3-3 (1-2, SEC) in 2010.
Offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach Garrick McGee met the media following the afternoon workout session, affirming that UA quarterback Ryan Mallett practiced in full after sustaining a concussion in Arkansas’ game at Auburn.
"His symptoms went away, so it didn’t surprise me today when he was ready to go," Coach McGee said. "He watched a lot of film yesterday. He’ll be ready to go; good as always."
It has been mentioned by the Arkansas coaching staff that the squad’s leadership has played a constant factor in the team’s success in 2010. Coach McGee noted that the team’s character was evident in practice on Tuesday.
"We’ve said it all along since the first day we started training camp," Coach McGee said. "This team has leadership. This team has character. Our kids continue to come to work every day. They continue to come with a good attitude. And they had a good practice today. There was a lot of energy in there; a lot of enthusiasm. I think they are looking forward to coming out this weekend in front of our home crowd and playing."
The UA-UM football game will air on the SEC Network. For more information on Arkansas football, please visit ArkansasRazorbacks.com.
