Arkansas is a step closer to finding out their next opponent after Missouri got an overtime buzzer beater to knock out Auburn in the best #WednesdayNightSadness game ever.

By now you’ve probably seen the news that Arkansas will be heading to Fort Collins to play Colorado State in 2018.

Those who have made the trip say that Fort Collins is a very underrated area as well, making this a good trip for Hog fans to go to an area they won’t normally see.
