As we near the end of 2021, it provides a great opportunity to reflect on what a remarkable year it has been for the Razorback Family! From championships to record performances, this year will be forever etched in the Razorback history books.

Happy New Year! I can’t think of a better way to ring in the Razorback New Year than with our exciting 24-10 victory over Penn State in the Outback Bowl in Tampa, Florida.

What an exciting Saturday on The Hill, as our Razorback football team battled for an exciting last-minute 31-28 win over No. 17 Mississippi State. Following the victory, Arkansas is ranked No. 25 in this week’s College Football Playoff rankings.

We are excited to head to Little Rock this weekend to host UAPB at War Memorial Stadium (11 a.m. kickoff). I hope you will plan on joining us for this historic first football matchup between these two in-state institutions who are part of the University of Arkansas System.

From Hog Town to the Hog Walk, the Razorback Band and Spirit Squads to the nation’s most beloved mascot Tusk V, it was great to have our fans back at Donald W. Reynolds Razorback Stadium for the football season opener. Coach Sam Pittman and the football team delivered a strong second half showing on the way to a 38-17 win over the Rice Owls.

It is that time again! After a record-breaking 2020-21 campaign, Razorback student-athletes, coaches and staff are on campus and gearing up for another banner athletics year in 2021-22. By this time next week, three of our fall sports (football, soccer and volleyball) will have officially started preparations for the season, with men’s and women’s cross country to begin later this month.

In a less than ordinary year, University of Arkansas student-athletes, coaches, staff came together in an extraordinary way, on and off the field, resulting in a record-setting athletics year.
