Coming off two convincing wins, the Hogs didn't lose any momentum over the bye week.
"As far as intensity, as far as execution, as far as everything goes, we were hitting on all cylinders today," senior quarterback Tyler Wilson said. "That's really where you expect it to be."
"You feel like guys are starting to really understand what we're doing," Petrino said. "We've just got to continue to do that for two more days."
With the extra week off, Chris Gragg's now healthy enough to play. The tight end will start on Saturday and for the first time since early against Rutgers, Arkansas' three top offensive stars (Wilson, Cobi Hamilton and Gragg) will all be on the field together.
"I want to try to make it better," Gragg said. "I don't want to miss a beat. The Kentucky game was how we want out offense to click. I just want to go and elevate that since I'm back."
"It's huge," Wilson said of his tight end's return. "You're able to disguise some stuff, put him in some formations. He's a great blocker so he helps you in the run game and catches the ball really well."
"There's a big difference with a tight end that can run like that compared to one that can't," Petrino added.
Gragg says the sound of the hit he took scared him but he hasn't watched it even once. It's in the past, especially when he's present on the field.
"Mostly dealing with soreness," Gragg described. "When I'm out there playing, I don't think about it. I don't feel it. Coaches said I've been looking pretty fast on film so I'm ready to go."
"Looks like he hasn't missed a beat," Wilson said. "He catches the ball just like always catches it. He's fast. I don't think he's lost a step."
How big of a factor is Gragg? He's only played half the season and still ranks second on the team in receptions.
