Weather Change Won't Affect Arkansas

FAYETTEVILLE — With the weather forecasters calling for a chance of rain and low temperatures in the 30s, Saturday's Arkansas-Ole Miss game could be the Razorbacks' first taste of poor conditions this season.

Not that defensive coordinator Reggie Herring cares.

"Defensively, we don't care about the weather," Herring said. "That's something for those offensive guys to worry about. You'll have to ask them about that.

"Defense, we're on the wall. We're on the wall, and we've got to go out there and stop them. So we don't worry about things like the weather."

Whether Arkansas is worried about Saturday's playing conditions, the defense did everything possible to avoid Wednesday's cold front by going inside the Walker Pavilion for its share of workouts. And the switch inside seemed to work well.

"We had probably our best practice of the year (Wednesday)," Herring said. "The day before, we didn't have a good practice, but they came back and did a good job."
