3-And-Out: Razorbacks Work For Better Tackling, Stopping Tigers' Dyer A Focal Point

Arkansas will, of course, have to watch for trick plays. Auburn has used those effectively and also has found freshman quarterback Kiehl Frazier (Shiloh Christian) capable of spot duty.

Frazier has primarily been used as a runner. He had 49 yards on nine carries against South Carolina and enters as a change of pace to Barrett Trotter. 

III. Bequette Update
Jake Bequette is closer to a return for Arkansas. Bequette practiced on Tuesday and was spotted dressed out on Wednesday.

Bequette wasn’t available for interviews with media, but did an in-house interview and appeared to be walking without any noticeable effects from a hamstring injury that has kept him out of three games.

Coach Bobby Petrino hinted earlier in the week Bequette might be back. Petrino went a bit further on the SEC teleconference when asked if Bequette would be ready to play.

"It looks like it. He practiced [Tuesday] night and did a good job," Petrino said.

No word, however, on defensive tackle Robert Thomas. Petrino and defensive coordinator Willy Robinson both gave the non-answer answer that Thomas is “getting better every day.”

Speaking Out
“Myself, I played horrible. I missed tackles. That’s one of the things I talked to Coach [Petrino] about, coach Robinson. I just had to come out and make sure I had a better week of practice."
