Two weeks before the spring game, Bielema made a late call to allow the public to come in and get a glimpse of the team. Here's what we learned.

Here's a link to unofficial stats of the 101-play scrimmage.

Here's the recap from UA:

FAYETTEVILLE - The University of Arkansas football team continued spring practice on Saturday with a workout inside Donald W. Reynolds Razorback Stadium. The team scrimmaged in front of hundreds of Arkansas fans. The team also met with local children from the Big Brothers, Big Sisters club, taking pictures and signing autographs.

After practice, Arkansas head coach Bret Bielema spoke to the media. He talked about the day’s practice and Saturday’s scrimmage.

"Today started out perfect," Coach Bielema said. "The kids were pumped and excited about having practice be open to the fans. They brought good energy and high tempo in the good weather. We are making tremendous strides"

The Razorbacks opened practice Saturday by playing reggae music over the loudspeakers. Coach Bielema discussed the positive impact that had on the team.

"I liked the music," Coach Bielema said. "It’s nice because the kids love it. It gets the kids popping, so that’s why we like to do it."

Coach Bielema also talked about his coaching philosophies, the positive moments from the day’s practice, and how the team is improving.

"There were a lot of positive things," Coach Bielema said. "There was a lot of good learning and good teaching out there. They are competing and playing very hard. I’m really excited about this group."

Practice continues next week with workouts scheduled for Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday. Arkansas' spring practices culminate in the Red-White Spring Game, sponsored by Cox, on April 20 at 2 p.m. inside Donald W. Reynolds Razorback Stadium. Admission to the game is
