Bacon and Ags? Let's do it. It's time for a road trip...

Jim O'Connor-USA TODAY Sports

What You Need to Know:

  • Thinking about making the trip to Fayetteville? Neither the A&M nor the Arkansas ticket offices have any tickets left, so we wish you the best of luck on the secondary market.
  • This year will be the Ags last trip to Donald W Reynolds Razorback Stadium for many years to come thanks to the agreement with Cowboys Stadium AT&T Stadium in Arlington.
  • The Association of Former Students has all of the official info for Midnight Yell Practice, an All-Aggie Tailgate, and hotel blocks on their website. CLICK HERE for those details.
  • Arkansas comes into the game with a record of 3-1 this year. They have wins over Louisiana, Samford, and Southern Miss, and a loss over the weekend at Rutgers.
  • Over the offseason, Arkansas got rid of head coach John L. Smith and hired Bret Bielema, who was the head coach at Wisconsin from 2006-2012.
  • The Fightin' Texas Aggies defeated the Razorbacks 58-10 last year in Aggieland. Relive those memories HERE.

Razorbacks to Watch

# 42 - Chris Smith (DE)

Smith has 5.5 sacks so far this year (tied for first in the NCAA), as well as 6.5 tackles for loss (best in the SEC).

#3 - Alex Collins (RB)

Collins, a freshman, has begun his career with three straight games with over 100 yards rushing. He is the first freshman in the history of the SEC to accomplish this.
