Bryan Harsin and Auburn will play a home game this week against Arkansas for the first time since Oct. 1, and the Tigers face a tall order in the Razorbacks’ offense.

“The biggest challenge is that they’re really good,” Harsin said on the SEC coaches media teleconference. “They’re tailbacks, their wide receivers. … and they’re well-coached. … The balance of the run game, the QB, the backs, the sweeps. … You have to know your assignments.”

One place to start is trying to slow down Rocket Sanders, who is the SEC’s leading rusher with 870 yards along with 7 touchdowns.

“One, he’s having a big year. He’s a really good player,” Harsin said. “He’s explosive and he runs hard. … He has really good vision. … He’s not a guy who usually goes down on the first tackle.”

Harsin also shared that AD Diamond, a freshman defensive back, is no longer on the team.
