Week's Razorback practices a grind, Petrino says

 FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) - Arkansas football coach Bobby Petrino says this week's practices for his Razorback players have been a grind as they prepared to meet Mississippi on Saturday.

Petrino said after Thursday's workout that the team executed well in the session.

He said the team was looking forward to playing at home against the Rebels, and players were pleased to learn they would be performing before a sellout crowd.

Kickoff for the game between No. 21 Arkansas (4-2, 1-2 Southeastern Conference) and Ole Miss (3-3, 1-2) is set for 11:21 a.m.
