The tension is always high on gameday. One strategy is to try and get into the opponent’s head.
That’s what seemed to happen on Saturday during pregame warmups for Arkansas and Auburn. The Tigers tried to gather in a circle at midfield and the Razorbacks were having none of it.
It seems like cooler heads prevailed with coaches intervening. It sort of looks like one of those poorly orchestrated baseball fights where everyone is holding everybody else back with no punches thrown, just a few shoves and a whole lot of talking. Though it’s odd the Razorbacks would take issue given it’s Auburn’s field.
For a moment, it seemed as though Arkansas was none too interested in allowing Auburn to gather for its pregame circle: pic.twitter.com/Bu4opBinJe

There are even a few players simply standing around and watching it happen. This is certainly something to keep in mind once the game starts as their is clearly already bad blood between the teams.
