SWC Game of the Week: Alabama at Arkansas

I know, I know, but remember Arkansas was a member of the SWC. Arkansas was a charter member of the SWC before jumping ship and ruining forever what was once great. Arkansas left the SWC in 1992 to join the SEC. It was fun rooting against them that last year though. Arkansas won 7 SWC football titles, including 1988 and 1989. They won one national championship as a SWC member in 1964. Of course the most famous game that Arkansas played was against Texas in Arkansas in 1969. Even Nixon went to the game! Texas won the matchup 15-14 (Don’t they always win?) The game featured two legendary coaches matching up, Texas’ Darrell Royal and Arkansas Frank Broyles. Arkansas has started this year 2-1, losing to USC. Alabama is 3-0 and ranked #22. The game will be broadcast on CBS.

Other notable games this week:
Baylor vs. Army (Army plays A&M, Baylor, TCU, and SMU this year, making them an honorary member of the SWC)
Houston vs. OK State (C-USA vs. Big 12)

Last week:
Arkansas 21 Vanderbilt 19
Baylor 15 Washington State 17
Houston 42 Grambling 22
Texas 52 Rice 7
SMU 45 Sam Houston 14
Texas A&M 28 Army 24
