Arkansas Razorbacks Football 2014 News and Updates
2/4/14 - The University of Arkansas is excited to brush off last year’s troubles and take on a new season. Second-year head coach Bret Bielema and second-year OC Jim Chaney will return to U of A for another go. There are 17 seniors leaving the class, while the biggest incoming recruits are 4-star OT Frank Ragnow and QB Rafe Peacey (top-ten QB recruit). After finishing 3-9, and 0-8 in the SEC (the first time with no wins since ’92), there’s nowhere to go but up for the Arkansas Razorbacks!
11/1/13 – After a strong start to the 2013 season, the Razorbacks dropped five in a row. Arkansas is coming off a much needed bye week, regrouping before playing #11 Auburn Saturday at home. A win in Fayetteville would give the Hogs some confidence heading into the following weekend on the road against Ole Miss. The Razorbacks have got to improve their passing game, averaging just over 146 yards per game, if they want to move up the SEC standings. Can QB Brandon Allen lead the charge and turn the season around for Arkansas? It’s not out of the question that the Hogs pick up some wins on the final stretch and become bowl eligible.
Arkansas Razorbacks Football
There is a new head coach in Fayetteville; one that the Arkansas Razorbacks hope can get the Hogs back to a bowl game. Bret Bielema, former coach of the Wisconsin Badgers
, was called upon during the off season. Despite having great success in Wisconsin, football fans believe it was the draw of the SEC that lured Bielema to the Neutral State. Just two years ago, under Bobby Petrino, the Razorbacks football team finished the season 11-2 and No. 5 in the AP Poll. USA Today ranked Arkansas football 83rd out of 125 programs this year with one of the toughest college football schedules in the nation.
The SEC Conference has nine of the top 25 most expensive College Football tickets in the country. However, the Razorbacks are not one of those teams. Arkansas Razorbacks tickets are averaging $107 for the 2013 season. Only three Southeastern Conference schools have a lower average price - Kentucky Wildcats Football (avg. $90), Mississippi Rebels Football (avg. $77), and Vanderbilt Commodores Football (avg. $58). The Hogs most expensive game at Razorback Stadium this year is Arkansas Razorbacks vs. Texas A&M Aggies Football, a Western Division rivalry averaging $189 per seat. That is, three-and-half times the cost of the Razorback’s home opener against Louisiana-Lafayette Ragin Cajuns Football. The Razorbacks schedule at home includes four Conference and three non-Conference games. One noticeable difference - the Hogs will play the South Carolina Gamecocks Football team earlier than its traditional November date.
