Hogs' Saturday practice moved indoors
Arkansas coach Bret Bielema watches practice Thursday, April 7, 2016, inside the Walker Pavilion in Fayetteville.
FAYETTEVILLE Arkansas' final practice of the spring season won't be a traditional scrimmage as originally planned.
The Razorbacks instead will hold a two-hour practice inside Walker Pavilion on Saturday beginning at noon. The practice will be televised by SEC Network and broadcast on the radio by the Razorback Sports Network.
The practice replaces Arkansas' annual spring game, which was closed to the public because of forecasts that call for heavy rains and severe thunderstorms Saturday. According to the National Weather Service, the area is under a moderate risk for severe weather that could include hail, strong winds and 8 to 10 inches of rain, with 15 inches of rain possible in some places.
