Razorbacks know Alabama, Ark. defense chief says

 FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) - Arkansas defensive coordinator Willy Robinson says the 10th-ranked Razorbacks are up to the task they face Saturday when No. 1 Alabama visits Fayetteville.

Robinson said after Wednesday's workout in Razorback Stadium that the Razorbacks (3-0, 1-0 Southeastern Conference) are familiar with the Crimson Tide (3-0, 0-0) and the fact that Alabama runs the ball so well.

He said the Tide is a tough team, and can pretty much choose how the game will be played.

But Robinson also noted that Arkansas leads the SEC in sacks per game, with four - a figure that is fourth in the NCAA. He said the Razorbacks do a good job of recognizing plays and getting to the football.

Kickoff for Saturday's nationally televised game is set for 2:30 p.m.
