Here's a quick reference page with everything you need to make the most out of your trip. We can't wait for you to experience gameday in our beautiful Ozark Mountain surroundings.


Arkansas has a long tradition of backing the men and women Razorback athletes, whether it’s football, baseball, basketball, volleyball or any of the other eight sports at the University of Arkansas. Die-hard fans show up rain or shine to cheer on the Hogs.

The first team formed on campus and the flagship of the sports programs is the Razorback football team. More than a century ago, the Arkansas football team, then called the Arkansas Cardinals, returned from defeating LSU and as the legend goes, coach Hugo Bezdek proclaimed his team “played like a wild band of razorback hogs.” The name was adopted and the rest is history.

Check out our list of past sporting accomplishments ranging from basketball and baseball to equestrian and water skiing.
