4 things every Arkansas fan needs to know today
Good morning, Arkansas fans and welcome to November. Another week and another win. What a great way to close out both October and non-conference play.
Bask in the 63-28 homecoming win over UT-Martin and the team getting back to a .500 record. Ole Miss awaits, so it should be a fun week.
The Razorbacks offense looks fine-tuned and the defense looks like it can tweak its way to help out in crucial moments in a win or two over the next four weeks. Here’s to Sunday morning arm-chair quarterbacking, but let’s also remember a trailblazing player who set the tone for African American collegiate players all over the South.
Here are four things to know:

- Darrell Brown faced adversity all his life, but he set a trail at Arkansas when he became the first African American Razorbacks football player. It helped set a precedent toward athletic equality in the South.
- Arkansas released two wide receivers after disciplinary reasons.
