Hogs Coach Expects A Few Tricks From ULM

FAYETTEVILLE -- Arkansas coach Houston Nutt said Thursday he anticipates Louisiana-Monroe will have a few tricks up its sleeve when the two schools meet this weekend.

The game, televised by ESPNU, is scheduled for 6 p.m. Saturday in War Memorial Stadium in Little Rock.

"They move the ball very well from the 20 to the 20," Nutt said. "They had (196) yards on Alabama. They are going to fake a field goal, they're going to fake a punt, so be ready.

"They've got nothing to lose, so be on your toes."

Nutt also spoke before his team faced No. 7 Auburn on Oct. 7 about the possibility of a trick play, but it was the Razorbacks who used deception with a surprise run by flanker Reggie Fish in the 27-10 victory.

The Razorbacks finalized their preparations for the Warhawks with an abbreviated practice Thursday afternoon.

Nutt said finally playing in Little Rock is something Razorbacks fans in central Arkansas look forward to.

"There's no question the fans in Little Rock will be ready," Nutt said. "I've already got a few e-mails, a few phone calls. They're excited and they can't wait.

"It's been a long time since they've had a ballgame down there. Usually, we've already had a ballgame in September down there, so is very anticipated."
