Refresh for latest updates.

• Pittman said he is educating players this week on the history of the Razorbacks playing in Little Rock. “I think it’s what makes Arkansas, Arkansas, that we’ve been willing to take the team to the central part of the state. I certainly remember when that happened when I was in high school and it happened a little bit here when I was an assistant coach.”

• Pittman said the team is “too beat up” to go full pads the entire week. He said they will practice in shells today and will cut back on practice length and physicality. “We just don’t have enough depth to do that right now. We would do it whether we were playing Auburn or playing Arkansas-Pine Bluff….That’s not being soft; that’s being smart.”
