Pre-game comments:

Linebackers coach Randy Shannon on sophomore linebacker Josh Williams: “You come here to be a part of something special. He had an opportunity to come in and play and didn’t miss a hit. He got us lined up, made a lot of tackles and chased the football hard. We were excited to give him a chance to get in the game and see what kind of player he was.”

Defensive backs coach Clay Jennings on UAB’s receivers: “Jamarcus Nelson is doing a great job stretching the defense. They have some pretty talented receivers. The quarterback also does a great job extending some plays and getting the ball down field. We have our work cut out for us. I think our guys are excited about putting in work this week and trying to get back on the right track.”

Sophomore cornerback DJ Dean on physical play: “Everyone’s trying to come back a little bit harder than we have before. Last week wasn’t Arkansas football. We’re trying to come back and rebuild.

Dean on defensive takeaways: “It’s been three weeks without a takeaway so we are definitely looking to get some Saturday. We just have to keep our eyes in the right spot and we will be alright.”
