Arkansas defensive line coach Rory Segrest on Taiwan Johnson’s play: “The thing about Taiwan is he’s an attention-to-detail guy. He tries to do things the way you ask him to do it. He’s explosive. He’s got some good quickness. He gives us some options inside. From a movement standpoint we can do some things with him there.”

Segrest on Texas Tech’s offense: “They do some different things. They’ve got some really good skill guys and they try to get the ball in their hands. They will run some quick plays and they will also try to stretch the field. We’ve just got to make sure we’re consistent, attacking the line of scrimmage and stopping the run first.”

Arkansas defensive backs coach Clay Jennings on the safety rotation: “We had three main guys last week: Liddell, Turner and Gaines. I believe we’ll have De’Andre Coley back this week as well so we’re excited to have him back. It’s fun to almost be totally healthy again.”

Jennings on Josh Liddell’s play: “We played around 70 snaps, I think Josh played about 35 of them. He made a couple of freshman mistakes. The one good thing that he has done this week is he’s come out and corrected those and had a pretty good week of practice.”

Arkansas safety Alan Turner on the defense the last two days of practice: “I feel like we did pretty well. We know we had some things where we made mistakes but that’s where film comes in and the next day we come in and try to fix those mistakes.”

The Razorbacks are set to battle Texas Tech Saturday afternoon in Lubbock, Texas in a game that will be televised nationally on ABC. Kickoff against the Red Raiders is slated for 2:30 p.m.
