Hear it from Coach Hale
“We are improving. UT Martin didn’t play a game on Thursday or Friday, and we knew they would have fresh legs and hungry for a result. We had players who weren’t going to let that happen. We got better as the game progressed; I think this is a testament to our depth and our mentality.
Next time outside
The Razorbacks resume the SEC game at Texas A&M (5-3-1), scheduled for 6 p.m. CT on Thursday, September 23. The game will be broadcast on SEC Network.
