First team has light scrimmage, Sorahan throws interception
FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. -- The Razorbacks followed their annual Fan Day with a no-contact scrimmage for the first team, while the second and third teams played full contact with no injuries Saturday.
Coach Houston Nutt said that although the first team has not run many full-contact drills yet, he remains confident of its ability to play at full force on Sept. 6 against Tulsa for the season-opener.
"These guys have played a lot of ball games," Nutt said. "They're seniors and juniors."
Quarterback Ryan Sorahan threw one interception, but Nutt excused that as a miscue from playing with no contact, when the defense isn't running at full speed to make the tackle.
"When you're not going full speed tackling and it's not really a tackle football game, you've got a tendency in the back of your mind to shut some things down," Nutt said.
Nutt praised the secondary, and said they showed promise even though tackles were not being counted.
"Marvin Jackson and Tony Bua really stood out," he said. "That secondary can play. We've got to get them to rush."
