Butch Jones held his weekly press conference today, and talked about this Saturday’s game against Arkansas State in Neyland Stadium.
Here’s an excerpt of his comments on Arkansas State:
Their offensive line does a great job. Their center is the gas pedal and he goes a great job – they all do – of sprinting to the line of scrimmage, and getting lined up. They have one of the best punters, kickers, in the country. He can flip field position in a hurry.
And so they’re a very good football team. They’re a veteran group in the back end of their defense in the secondary, and they’ll pose our receivers some great, great challenges. They’re very physical. They run to the football. Their quarterback is dynamic with the ball in his hands, but he can also distribute the football. They have good wide receivers. So – a good football team – and our football team has to come ready to play Saturday at noon.
