Good morning, Razorback fans. It’s homecoming weekend, and while UT-Martin comes to town for the game, the university asks fans, alumni, students, faculty and staff to help turn their attention to show support of Oklahoma State University. Details are listed in the story that’s linked in the things to know for today.
The 2016 SEC schedule has been released, Alex Collins is hungry, Arkansas has a 3-point shooting phenom and Alabama’s running back has incredible strength.
Here are three things to know:
- The 2016 schedule was released and Arkansas will host four SEC games in Fayetteville for the first time in history, and the opponents coming next year — Alabama, LSU, Florida and Ole Miss — have a combined 26-4 record this year. Oh, don’t forget about the road trip to TCU.
- Arkansas running back Alex Collins is still hungry and feels he has what it takes “to be great.”
- The administration at Arkansas encourages students, faculty, staff, fans and alumni to help show support for the folks at Oklahoma State University after last weekend’s tragedy.
