With State's power running, option reads and counters, there is a heavy burden on the Arkansas defensive front to maintain discipline and balance.
"That goes especially for me. Last week I was running around and now I have to get back to playing my technique and reading keys."
Defensive coordinator Willy Robinson said it isn't just about playing a spot. It's about winning the battle for that spot.
"Our players have been all business this week in practice," Robinson said. "They know what to expect. They know what a physical team we are playing this week."
Wright does know what to expect.
"I've played their offense," he said. "I know what they are going to do, try to run it down our teeth. They have a physical offensive line. They are going to come out and try to run the ball on our front. They will come out trying to dominate our line. That's their type of game.
"It's a great challenge. They come directly at you. You can't get out of your gap because they'll find it. They are coming at us."
Robinson was asked about the State offense with two quarterbacks, Chris Relf and Tyler Russell.
"They play two, but they don't cut back their offense when they bring in the second one," Robinson said. "Relf is a true dual threat guy, but with Russell they still run the same stuff. He's more of a pure thrower, although Relf has improved his passing."
Relf is a load. He's 6-4, 245 and can be like a fullback playing quarterback.
"He is big," Wright said. "What you have to remember is one of the fundamentals of tackling, you use everything you can to get him down. I do know that if you get someone's legs, or their feet, it's hard to go anywhere without them. You hold on and get help.
"The first thing you have to do is get off blocks and then you can run to the ball. So that's our job against Relf."
Running back Chris Ballard has Robinson's attention, too.
"We think he's a stud," Robinson said. "To be honest, he's an under rated running back. He plays with a low pad level and he gets into the end zone. Because of his pad level, you can easily become the nail. We want to be the hammer against him."
The Hogs will try to stay fresh on the defensive line against the physical Bulldogs. That's a plus for the UA front with the return of Wright and Bequette to healthy status.
"Having Tank back made me very comfortable on the sideline," Robinson said. "He brings an added dimension to our defense because of what he can do as a football player. He plays with a high motor."
Robinson praised Bequette.
"Jake is an outstanding football player," Robinson said. "We've grown up together (in this defense). He's been one of our leaders and he bought into the system. When we have to have a big play, he plays big. He's made big plays in big situations."
