Saturday scrimmage and practice at fall camp

Friday, August 17, 2012

The No. 10 University of Arkansas football team held a team scrimmage on Saturday morning, Aug. 6, followed by an evening practice at Donald W. Reynolds Razorback Stadium.

Head coach John L. Smith spoke with the media after the scrimmage. Coach Smith talked about the positives from the morning session.

"It was a good scrimmage," Coach Smith said. "There were a lot of positive things on both sides. In particular, I liked the attitude that the defense approached (the scrimmage) with. They played with spirit and enthusiasm. There was a lot of grinding going on, on both sides of the ball. Overall, I was quite pleased from a defensive standpoint."

Coach Smith also talked about the offensive running game.

"The offense ran the ball well, when we concentrated on it down here (by the goal line)," Coach Smith said. "We are going to be good offensively."

The Razorbacks continued camp with two practices on Aug. 13 at the intramural fields. All practices held outside through Aug. 18 will be open to the public, but practices moved inside Walker Pavilion will be closed due to space limitations. The team is scheduled to practice at the intramural fields through Aug. 16.

Arkansas opens its 2012 season Sept. 1 at Razorback Stadium in Fayetteville against Jacksonville State. The game begins at 6 p.m., and will be shown on a pay-per-view basis with details to be announced.
