Hogs Insider With Chuck Barrett

Hogs Insider With Chuck Barrett

If you’re a true, dyed-in-the-wool Razorback, there’s a lot to follow right now. The football Hogs are preparing for their first road trip of the season. Many questions will begin to be answered beginning Saturday. It’s an interesting trip in that no Arkansas team has played football in the Northeast since 1940. It’s also the first time an SEC team has played on the Rutgers campus in Piscataway, N.J. The Scarlet Knights have hosted SEC teams before, but those games were played at Giants Stadium. A near sell-out is expected, and the students have called for a "blackout". The Hogs are carrying the SEC banner against a team that will join the Big 10 next year. The game will feature three of the nation’s top seven rushers, and despite the fact that Gary Nova threw for a career high five touchdowns last year in Fayetteville, Rutgers has gotten it done primarily on the ground so far this season. There’s plenty more Razorback action in the coming days, too. The Razorback volleyball team is off to another fine start under head coach Robert Pulliza. They won the Golden Hurricane Invitational last weekend in Tulsa, and will host the Razorback Invitational this weekend at Barnhill Arena. They’ll face Kansas State Friday night at 7 p.m. The soccer team is also in action at home Friday night as well. They host Ole Miss in the SEC opener at 7 p.m. The men’s tennis team is in Nashville for the SEC Fall Coaches Championship, with play beginning tomorrow. The women’s tennis team will split its squad this weekend, with one half going to Little Rock for the Little Rock Classic, while the other half travels east to participate in the William and Mary Invitational. Men’s and women’s golf plays in tournaments later this week. Both teams are ranked in the Top 10. Men’s cross country travels to the Missouri Southern Stampede in Joplin, while the women compete in a meet in San Diego. Pick your team and Call the Hogs!
