Hogs Prep for Weber State

The Arkansas Razorbacks wrapped up another day of preparations for Weber State with a two-hour practice session Tuesday afternoon.

Arkansas head coach Houston Nutt noted the Hogs must continue their hard work heading into Saturday's contest against the Wildcats.

"We started out well today," Nutt said. "But we didn't finish like we should have. We didn't have the concentration towards the end of practice that needed. We need to get better tomorrow. We've got to be prepared because anybody can beat anybody and that's true for this weekend."

Nutt also commented on Weber State tailback Johnnie Gray who is averaging 132.5 yards per game rushing this season. The Wildcats also enter the game averaging 25.5 points and 407.2 yards of offense per game.

"We don't really know a lot about Gray," Nutt said. "He is very quick and he has helped their offense put a lot of points on the board. It will be a good challenge for our defense."

Middle linebacker Jermaine Petty has paced the Razorbacks' defense this season averaging 13.75 tackles per game which is ninth best in the NCAA.

"Jermaine is having a good senior year," Nutt said. "He has been one our leaders. He has been consistent every Saturday and has come to play every time. His attitude has been tremendous all year. We needed him at linebacker this year and he accepted that role and has performed very well."

Arkansas and Weber State will kickoff at 6 p.m. this Saturday at Donald W. Reynolds Razorback Stadium.
