Ark. defensive chief: Workout a grind for players

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) - Arkansas defensive coordinator Willy Robinson says the Razorback coaching staff has been impressed with the team's performance in practice this week.

Robinson said after Wednesday's workout that the practice session was very much a grind for the players - and they ate it up.

"They enjoyed it and I don't think there were any mistakes at all," Robinson said.

After going 2-0 against nonconference opponents Tennessee Tech and Louisiana-Monroe to open the season, the No. 12 Razorbacks travel to Athens, Ga., to open Southeastern Conference play with this Saturday's matchup against the Georgia Bulldogs. Kickoff is set for 11 a.m.
