Today’s matchup of the Hogs and the Rebels will be available on RazorZone Sunday, October 21.
This weekend’s Arkansas and Ole Miss match up will be the 54th meeting between the two teams. The Razorbacks lead the series 29-23-1. The Rebel record books, however, have Arkansas leading the series 27-24-1. The discrepancy stems from the 1914 game in Little Rock which Arkansas claims as a win alleging that Ole Miss used an ineligible player. The Rebels deny the allegations and count a 13-7 win on the field. As all of the participants in the game are no longer living, it’s doubtful that this issue will be resolved any time soon.
The Razorbacks have won five of the last six meetings between the teams including a 38-3 win in Fayetteville last season. Arkansas leads the series 8-1 in games played in Fayetteville and leads the series 7-6-1 in games played in Little Rock.
Arkansas enjoys a 9-6 advantage in the series since the Hogs joined the SEC in 1992. Houston Nutt is 6-3 against Ole Miss since taking over the reins at Arkansas in 1998.
