Getting involved on Razorback Game Day

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. — For Razorback fans attending Saturday's football season opener against Louisiana at Donald W. Reynolds Razorback Stadium, there are a variety of new ways to get involved, including in helping welcome Arkansas head coach Bret Bielema and the team to the field with a new team entrance sequence that includes a traditional Hog Call just minutes before kickoff.

Shortly after the Razorback Marching Band forms the "A" in the north end zone, fans will be asked to join the band and cheerleaders in a Hog Call. As the cheer concludes, Coach Bielema and the Razorbacks will burst through the "A" to take the field. As the band and spirit squads clear the field for the start of the game, a special kickoff video will be played on the video board to help maintain the fan excitement during the interval before the opening kickoff of the game while utilizing some of the program's most time honored traditions.

The new kickoff video will make its debut on Saturday, but fans can get a sneak preview on Twitter by following Vice Chancellor and Director of Athletics Jeff Long (@JeffLongUA). On Friday at Noon, Long will tweet out a teaser of the video that will be used on game day.

Coach Bret Bielema is also encouraging Razorback fans to help out the defense when the opposing team faces third down. By utilizing the abbreviated Hog Call Razorback fans have traditionally used on kickoffs, the third-down cheer will help raise the noise level in the stadium in a way unique to the Razorbacks. As the opposing team's center stands over the football, fans should start the "Woo" of the Hog Call and hold until the snap of the ball. At the snap of the football, fans should finish the Hog Call with "Pig Sooie."

    Claremore sophomore forward Brylee Brasher may have felt a little out of position Monday night during the junior varsity game against Verdigris.
    Normally, starting in the goal for the Lady Zebras varsity team, Brasher came out of her comfort zone to start at forward for the Claremore JV.
    The position switch proved to be a great decision for head coach Robin Sutherland, as Brasher showed a tenacity on offense that led to Claremore’s 2-1 win over Verdigris.
