Sorahan Looks Sharp In Thursday Practice
BY ANDRES FOCIL
FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – Arkansas head coach Houston Nutt praised the performance of the Razorbacks Thursday following their two-hour workout and made special note of quarterback Ryan Sorahan’s performance during the session.
“Ryan was really sharp today,” Nutt said. “He an outstanding day. He completed about 80 percent of his passes. This was his best day so far. He picked up blitzes and did a good job throwing the ball away when he needed to.”
The Razorbacks will work under the lights Friday as practice moves to Donald W. Reynolds Razorback Stadium.
“We have not been under the lights at all this year,” Nutt said. “We are going to be playing under the light for at least a half next weekend and this will give our kick returners and receivers a chance to get used to that.”
While the Razorbacks continue practice this weekend, their opponent next weekend will be opening the season. Tulsa travels to Minneapolis to take on the Minnesota Golden Gophers this Saturday.
Nutt addressed any advantage or disadvantage of opening a week before your opponent.
“I don’t think it’s a huge advantage,” Nutt said. “They will have the experience of that game and that is always good. But, the only real advantage is the get an extra off week during the season.”
With the season opener just over a week away, Nutt said the Razorbacks spent Thursday’s practice working specifically on the Golden Hurricane.
Arkansas and Tulsa kickoff at 6 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 6, at Donald W. Reynolds Razorback Stadium. The game will not be televised.
