Catch an inside glimpse of the 24 greatest games in Razorbacks football history as remembered by key figures in each contest. Authored by Rick Schaeffer, who publicized Arkansas athletics for more than two decades as sports information director, this book provides mini-biographies of many of the most highly respected names in Razorbacks football. Ron Calcagni gives an inside look at the mammoth upset of Oklahoma in the 1978 Orange Bowl. Bobby Crockett recalls the heart-stopping victory over Texas in 1965. J.J. Meadors and Anthony Eubanks made last-minute touchdown catches to help the Hogs beat Alabama in Tuscaloosa twice. Matt Jones chronicles the seven-overtime win at Ole Miss. Gary Anderson recounts his career that ended with Most Valuable Player honors in a Bluebonnet Bowl win over Florida. Preston Carpenter details the 1954 Ole Miss game, a contest that put Razorbacks football on the map. Chuck Dicus, Ken Hatfield, Madre Hill, Joe Ferguson, Clint Stoerner, and many others tell their stories, many of which have never been published, that give the reader a sense of being in the huddle with Arkansas' all-time greats. If you call the Hogs first thing in the morning and last thing before going to bed at night or if somehow you are just a casual Arkansas fan, you'll love these recollections of the finest moments in Razorbacks football.
