It’s great for everyone, especially fans, to see a rivalry game return.

Ever since Arkansas visited Austin in 2008, the Razorback faithful have been waiting for Texas’ return trip. Thirteen years later, Steve Sarkisian, the first-year head coach, will lead his team into a Donald W. Reynolds Razorback stadium crowd.

Arkansas announced Saturday’s matchup is sold out and will have nearly 80,000 fans in attendance. It’s the football program’s first sell-out since the 2017 season against TCU.

76,808 is Donald W. Reynolds Razorback Stadium’s attendance record back in 2010 when No. 1 Alabama visited town. There are still standing room tickets available so there is a good chance Arkansas will break the record by a few thousand.

The Texas-Arkansas match is sold out, according to Arkansas athletics. This is not surprising. But this will be Arky’s first sellout since 2017?! This is eye-opening.

Sarkisian is aware of the environment Texas is entering. While it is important to appreciate the moment, it is equally important that players prepare for the week by making sure the crowd isn’t intimidating or causing any roadblocks.

Experienced defense will have a much easier time getting signals in. Sarkisian, a redshirt freshman, must manage the crowd.

” We know it’s going be hostile environment,” stated Sarkisian. “I believe one of the keys to us handling that crowd noise is what we do from communication standpoint .”

Texas will try to silence 80,000 Hog fans Saturday beginning at 6 p.m. Getting a win could be crucial for the program, creating a significant amount of momentum heading into conference play.
