FAYETTEVILLE Arkansas will open its practice doors for the first time Saturday.

The Razorbacks announced earlier today that the scrimmage in Razorback Stadium is open to the public.

The only entry into the stadium will be through Gate 1 on the west side of the stadium. The gate will open at 3:30 p.m.

Arkansas coach Bret Bielema said via Twitter the scrimmage - which was originally closed to the public - is open because of the "growth & development we have shown with our practices."

It will be Arkansas' first scrimmage of the preseason.

"We're ready to play some full-out ball," Arkansas tackle Grady Ollison said Thursday. "These first couple days of camp, it's been a lot of drills, and we've installed a couple plays here and there. But in terms of just playing flat-out ball, just all out, we haven't really done that yet. So'm looking forward to Saturday."
