FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – The Arkansas football team looked sharp during a 90-minute practice inside the Willard and Pat Walker Pavilion on Tuesday afternoon as the Razorbacks continue preparations for the No. 6 Wisconsin Badgers in the Capital One Bowl.
The Hogs will change up their practice schedule in order to allow the players to have more time with their families over the Christmas break.
“This has been an outstanding week of practice,” Arkansas head coach Houston Nutt said. “What we are going to do is we are going to go two-a-days tomorrow (Wednesday). We will let them get out of here a little early since we have had such good contact and hitting.”
The bowl practices since the end of finals have been very beneficial for the Razorbacks. One of the areas the coaches have seen the most improvement is at receiver where several players have stepped up in competition for the No. 2 receiver slot.
“I’ll tell you with Cedric Washington, Reggie Fish and Robert Johnson we haven’t missed a beat,” Nutt said. “They have done an outstanding job and really caught the ball extremely well the last two days. They are very attentive and very focused. They know they are going to get to play a lot of snaps.”
The Hogs return to the practice field on Wednesday at 9:55 a.m. for 70 minutes and then again at 2:15 p.m. for an hour.
