FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. -- The Arkansas Razorbacks polished their game plan Tuesday for the weekend matchup against Auburn.

Seventh-ranked Arkansas (4-0, 1-0) practiced outdoors for two hours, and coach Houston Nutt said he was pleased with the team's effort.

"It was a great practice today," Nutt said. "We need to continue that. Auburn is a good football team. They have great athletes and they are playing well right now."

Nutt said he wants the fans to be a factor in the game.

"I want our fans to come early and stay late," he said. "We need to make this a tough place to play."

As for injuries, Nutt said senior split end George Wilson did not practice as he continued to nurse a sprained ankle.

Quarterback Matt Jones will look to continue his solid play against the Tigers. Last season, Jones had a 70-yard touchdown run as the Razorbacks posted a 38-17 win in Auburn. In 2001, Jones rushed for 99 yards, including a 32-yard scoring run.

Saturday's contest, which is also the school's homecoming game, kicks off at 11:30 a.m. at Fayetteville against the Tigers (3-2, 2-0).
