Know Your History: The Hawgs and the Dawgs

Drop these fun facts at your next cocktail hour and watch yourself become the hit of the party:

• If the Razorbacks manage to beat Georgia this Saturday, it will mark a depressingly rare occasion in the series between the schools. Heading into this weekend's showdown, Georgia has an 8-3 record against the Hogs.

• Arkansas has won a mere 11 bowl games. However, two of those victories have come against the Bulldogs: a 16-2 victory in the 1969 Sugar Bowl and a 31-10 win in the 1976 Cotton Bowl (the latter game marked Frank Broyles' last bowl-game appearance as Hogs' coach).

In fact, Arkansas has played more bowl games - four - against Georgia than against any other team. The Bulldogs beat the Hogs 20-17 in the 1987 Liberty Bowl and 24-15 in the 1991 Independence Bowl. With three post-season games against Arkansas, Oklahoma is the Hogs' second-most-frequent bowl-game opponent.

• The Razorbacks and Bulldogs have met one other time in a non-regular-season setting: the 2002 SEC Championship Game. This one got really ugly really quickly: the Hogs had a punt blocked on their first possession, and Georgia scored on its first five possessions for a 23-0 halftime lead and a 30-3 win.

• Arkansas' only win against the Bulldogs since joining the SEC came during Danny Ford's first season as Hogs coach, on Oct. 2, 1993, in Athens. The Razorbacks won 20-10.

• In 2005, the Razorbacks posted their second consecutive losing season with an ugly 4-7 record. However, the Hogs played well against No. 4 ranked Georgia, losing 23-20 in Athens. The game was the first of two narrow losses that season to Top Five teams. In the season finale, the Razorbacks lost 19 to 17 to No. 3 ranked LSU.
