Bragging Rights: Razorbacks for the Win

If you love college sports and nationally ranked teams, there is no better place than the University of Arkansas campus – home of the Arkansas Razorbacks!

This last year, Hog fans remained connected by a common love of Razorback sports. The pandemic has been hard, but that hasn’t kept the Razorback athletic teams from competing at their best.

In recent weeks, Arkansas’ teams have risen to the top of the rankings – an accomplishment worthy of tooting the proverbial horn, or better yet calling the Hogs!

So give your best Woo Pig Sooie and check these impressive stats Hog fans need to know!

Men’s Basketball, led by Coach Eric Musselman, climbed to eighth in the nation in the AP poll March 8, the highest ranking by the program since 1995.

Razorback Baseball, with Coach Dave Van Horn at the helm, took the #1 spot in college baseball rankings, leading all six national polls for the first time in program history.

Women’s Basketball senior guard Chelsea Dungee set a school record in a Feb. 24 win against Auburn with the most career points (2,074) – more than any Razorback athlete ever!

Razorback Gymnastics, led by coach Jordyn Wieber, set a program record-breaking meet score of 197.425 in a March 5 win over No. 12 Auburn.

The Men’s and Women’s Track and Field teams clinched the men’s and women’s team titles at the 2021 SEC Indoor Track & Field Championships and are competing for the national title in Fayetteville!

Razorback Softball Coach Courtney Deifel became the fastest coach in program history to reach 150 wins at Arkansas, doing so in 259 games. 

Arkansas Razorback athletes showed up in the classroom, too, with a collective GPA of 3.21 in fall 2020 at the University of Arkansas

2021-22 Razorback sports action is underway now!
