Hogs preparing for second scrimmage of spring practice

FAYETTEVILLE — More than halfway through spring camp, Arkansas went through a 20-period practice in just helmets and shoulder pads Thursday on the outdoor practice fields at the Fred W. Smith Football Center.

It was Arkansas’ eighth of 15 scheduled spring practices. The Razorbacks will go through their second scrimmage of the spring Saturday as they continue to prepare for the annual Red-White Spring Game on April 29.

While the team is still installing offensive and defensive schemes, some of the focal points Tuesday included two-minute drill with no timeouts as well as situations in which the offense was coming out from deep in its own end of the field.
