FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. -- Arkansas coach Houston Nutt says the Razorbacks had a good week of practice, but now they must carry that effort into Saturday's game.

"We've got to take the work from practice to the game field," Nutt said. "Saturday is the only day they keep score. We got better each day this week, and that was our goal."

Arkansas wrapped up the majority of work on the game plan for its game at Ole Miss with a 1{ hour practice Thursday.

With injuries to Cedric Cobbs and De'Arrius Howard, Nutt said sophomore Kyle Dickerson will start at tailback.

"We're going to see how things go Saturday," Nutt said. "We've got a lot of confidence in all of our tailbacks."

The Razorbacks lead the overall series 26-22-1 and have won the last two against the Rebels.

Arkansas (4-2, 1-2) and Ole Miss (5-2, 3-0) kick off Saturday at 6:15 p.m. in Oxford.
