Arkansas’ team practiced on the field at Globe Life this afternoon. Kendall Diggs and Jayson Jones practiced. Dave Van Horn told me that both are close to 100% and are doing a lot better than last weekend when they were battling lower-body injuries.
There are 36 players on the trip. Jaxon Wiggins, Jordan Huskey and Nick Griffin did not make the trip and they will redshirt. Wiggins is obviously injured. Van Horn said yesterday that Griffin is battling some arm problems.
It was daylight when the Razorbacks practiced today and Van Horn thinks that will help the team for Sunday afternoon’s game against Oklahoma State. There are a lot of areas in the roof where the glass exposes the sky outside, and that can make fly balls and popups become tricky. That should not be an issue during the night games Friday and Saturday.
Similar to bowl games, the players all received a gift for being at this event. It was a Bose bluetooth speaker.
