12:23, 1st Quarter – Arkansas took the opening kickoff and has moved to the Aggies 35 behind a 3-of-4 passing start from Nick Starkel but the Razorbacks call timeout facing a 4th and 5.
As Arkansas looks to stop the bleeding after a loss to San Jose State last week, a familiar face shows up on the schedule but also one who the Razorbacks haven’t had much success against.
The Hogs have not beaten Texas A&M since 2011 but they have been close, but we all know that doesn’t count. Four of the previous five meetings between Arkansas and the Aggies have been decided by just a touchdown.
