The usual. Chuck Barrett and Keith Jackson will call the game.

Here's the list of affiliates. (you can also stream the call from that link on standard or mobile)

On satellite radio, the game will be on Sirius 109 and XM 192.

Spread

This line opened up at Arkansas +3 and VERY quickly got bet up to Arkansas +7.5, O/U 58.  I have to admit with the showing the Hogs have had the last 2 weeks, the faith Vegas initially had in Arkansas was a bit surprising. If last week is an indicator as to how our defense does against the spread, you may want to lean toward this not being Arkansas’ week.  I like the over though.

Weather

High 80s to low 90s for tailgating outside of Jerry World with 0% chance of rain.  Air conditioning and a roof during the game, so, hopefully comfortable.

Notes

The Arkansas defense looked like thinly sliced swiss cheese last week versus a (mildly) lesser version of the same offense we’ll see on the field this week against A&M.  We’ll also face a seemingly rejuvenated John Chavis defense with even fewer skill position players than we began the game with versus Tech.  So let’s focus on something other than the events on the field here this week…

A&M officials seem to want this game back on each campus, while Arkansas seems perfectly happy to leave it in Dallas. The current contract runs through 2024.  Although the idea of "home" games away from Fayetteville seem a bit past their time to me (Little Rock), the ability to host local recruits in the Razorback’s most visible donor and supporter’s football palace every other year doesn’t seem like a bad idea to me.  Bert tweeted Friday that he didn’t have a problem running through the coach and player allotment of passes, so the recruiting benefits seem obvious. Financially it’s basically a wash per Jeff Long and hey, Darren McFadden will even be on the sidelines this year.  So what say you Hog fans?  Keep it in Dallas or move it to home and home?  Let us know your thoughts in the comments section below.
