🎥 Casting call
🤸 Arkansas begins with record-setting outing
🐗 And so much more! 


Do you remember how you reacted when you saw Michael Qualls beat the Wildcats on a buzzer-beating slam? We want to hear your memories and share them with Razorback fans in the upcoming Hogs+ film “Walk on Air” — premiering in one week on January 23rd.

🏀 If you plan on attending the Arkansas men’s basketball game vs. Texas A&M tonight and want to participate, be sure to arrive early and visit the Hall of Champions Museum inside the South Entrance of Bud Walton Arena. Hogs+ producers will be set up from 7 - 8:15 p.m. to capture fans’ memories of the iconic moment.

🎥 If you can’t attend the game, we still want to hear from you! Just record a selfie video and send it to us on Twitter/X at @HogsPlus.


Pro Hogs in the playoffs. A few former Razorbacks are still in contention for the Super Bowl, and they’re no strangers to the Hog Pod.

🏈 From a talent standpoint, it’s no surprise Frank Ragnow has found success at the highest level. Hear how the 4-star prospect with offers from some of the best programs in the nation became a first-round pick.

🏈 Dre Greenlaw has been through more in life than most. We talk about his childhood of growing up in the foster care system and moving all over the state of Arkansas, to his ascension on the field for the Hogs.

🏈 At 6-10, Dan Skipper stands out on and off the football field. But his journey from Arkansas to the NFL has been larger than life. Walk through his unique football journey in his shoes.


🔺 Fantastic Gymnastics. The Razorback gymnastics team opened its season last Friday night in front of over 4,500 fans in Barnhill Arena and defeated the Georgia Bulldogs, 197.150-196.350. That’s the best week one score by the Gymbacks ever, and the first time the team has ever scored over 197 in a season opener.

Cami Weaver and Lauren Williams grabbed shares of the vault crown with 9.900 scores, which matched a personal best for Cami. In her balance beam debut, junior Maddie Jones earned a 9.900, which tied her for first. Lauren and Frankie Price delivered strong tumbling and stellar choreography for scores of 9.950 on floor, which gave them the tie for the title.

Arkansas has now won five straight meets over Georgia. Meet No. 2 of the season is this Friday evening at Alabama.

🔺 Tide Turned. After going down 10 points to start the game, Arkansas women’s basketball turned the tide in outscoring Alabama by 28 points in a 77-59 victory Sunday afternoon. The Hogs earned its 10th straight win in Tuscaloosa as Maryam Dauda broke the single-game school record with 10 blocks. The Hogs also out-rebounded Alabama, 52-35. Samara Spencer led the way with her first double-double of the season with a season-high 31 points and a career-high 14 rebounds.

🔺 Hawai’i Seven-O. The Arkansas men’s tennis team started the season off on a high note with a 7-0 sweep over Hawai’i in Honolulu late last week. The Razorbacks claimed an early lead with a doubles sweep to earn the first point of the match. Senior Stefanos Savva and freshman Connor Smillie teamed up for the first time for a 6-1 win on court three, while senior Alan Sau Franco and sophomore Gerard Planelles Ripoll grabbed a 6-3 victory in the top spot. Graduate Jared Horwood and senior Melvin Manuel closed out doubles play with a narrow 7-5 win over Collins/Somerville.

🔺 Beat The Heat. Staying out West, the Arkansas women’s tennis team wrapped up competition at the Duel in the Desert in Indian Wells, CA with 21 match wins — 14 singles and seven doubles — against Clemson, Iowa State, and Kansas in a hidden dual format. Arkansas ended up sweeping Clemson in doubles play on Friday, and went 7-2 in doubles play for the entire event.

🔺 Warm Welcome. After back-t0-back road games, Razorback men’s basketball returns home to play two straight in Bud Walton Arena, starting with their all-time most common opponent in Texas A&M. Arkansas and Texas A&M have met on 167 previous occasions and are meeting for the first of two times this year.

The homestand starts tonight at 8pm, and the game will be televised on SEC Network.
