My favorite victory over Texas
« on: August 20, 2017, 02:42:29 pm »

1981.  Texas had just destroyed #1 OU the week before.  Living in Dallas at the time all my friends told me how bad  Texas, who took over the #1 ranking in the polls that week, would beat Arkansas.   I was smiling non-stop for a week after this game.

They showed it on SEC Network a little while ago in the Arkansas takeover. I wasn't even alive back then but my Dad has always told me how good we were under Holtz and after seeing that re-run, I believe it. I like the veer offense and we had a small but tenacious defense. Hope we can get back to the level we were under Holtz.

For me 79 Texas.  Stadium in LR was shaking.  I was at 81 also, but in 79 we had beat them only once (71) since 1966.  After sitting through 4 of those losses in Fayetteville 79 was sweet.

Every win against the T sippers was sweet but you have to admit that beating them when they had the most to lose was extra special. 1981 was a bona-fide mauling. We beat them in every phase of the game and they were #1. It had to hurt them tremendously. A little payback for 69.

79 was borderline erotic to me and my wife. Quite a celebration up and down University Ave. 81 gives me a sweet tooth though.  ::hornsdown::

79 was incredible….so loud your ears were ringing. Only time i ever heard it louder was Teddy Barnes catch in the south end zone in 75. But I have to say the win in Austin I think in 2008 was sweet. There were some angry horn fans that day as we made our way out of the stadium

That wasn't 2008.   :puke:

2003 was definitely sweet.  Then O'fer October happened, right?

2000 Cotton Bowl.  We hadn't played them since leaving the SEC, and thoroughly thrashed them.  We were in their backfield all day and held them to (negative) yards rushing for the day.

I was in AF basic training during that game. We had chow hall duty that day and the NCO in charge of the kitchen had the game on in his office and let me watch it. One of the best days I had in Basic. lol

1964 14 - 13 win in Austin.  Hatfield's punt return for a touchdown and the defense stopping Ernie Koy on the 2 point extra point try to seal the game late in the 4th quarter.  Arkansas went on to shut out its last 5 opponents.

1981, just because they were #1, and we beat the cow pies out of them.

1965 in Fayetteville. Texas came in ranked No. 1 with Arkansas No. 2 in AP and No. 3 in UPI. The game was nationally televised by NBC (this was a year before ABC got the TV contract) with Lindsey Nelson and Bud Wilkinson doing the telecast. Doc Severinson performed at halftime with the Razorback band. Hogs jumped to a 20-0 lead but with a little over four minutes left in the game, Texas led 24-20 and Arkansas looked dead. Frank Broyles' great quote following game:  "Jim Lindsey rallied our team. I was a babbling idiot!" With Lindsey providing the pep talk, Jon Brittenum and Bobby Crockett led an epic 80-yard drive with Brittenum scoring the winning touchdown with just over a minute to play for a 27-24 final. The next week, Arkansas was ranked No. 1 for the first time in the Associated Press poll.  Still remember driving around Rogers after the game listening to people honking horns. Great memories!

Love beating Texas, but in a 3rd tier bowl game doesn't move the needle.  '81 for me.

'65  hogs go up  on no. 1 Texas  20-0. Texas fights back and takes the lead 24-20. Hogs go 80 in last 3 minutes for 27-24 win.

This is mine as well.

Believe it or not, the 1964 game in which we beat defending National Champion Texas in Austin was not even regionally broadcast!   An inexcusable oversight, since the two had been perennial top 10 teams since Broyles and Royal arrived 6-7 years earlier, and had already played some truly classic games.  Kind of reminds me about our games vs. Kentucky being on Raycom and ESPN2 (which few had at the time) instead of CBS or ESPn the first 3 years we were in the SEC, including the year we won the National Championship.  Epic games, but most of the nation was not aware of them because they were not able to see them!

Anyway, living out of state, I was starved to see my heroes on TV.  That 1965 game was every bit the game the 1969 game was.  Only difference was that it was in the usual mid-October time slot instead of moved to the end of the year.  But we were #3 headed into that game, Texas #1.  And, as described, it was a very dramatic comeback by Texas followed by the game winning drive by the Hogs.  Doesn't get much better than that.

81 victory was the completion of my Hog education as a youngster. We went to town that night up and down Geyer Springs and University just to revel with the masses. Talking the whole family loaded up just to go see this happening. I knew already that the hogs were important to Arkansans, I just found out then how deeply in the blood they are, and how much Texas was despised.

It has to be Texas in 65', 27-24. The victory vaulted us to No.# 1 for the week we ever
held the top spot. It was National Television in the only game of the week. The TV
crew zeroed in on the tackle piles closer than I had ever seen them during this game
and you see the Texas defenders pinching our guys in pileups every play!  I don't
remember seeing our guys employ this tactic. Tommy Trantham, Loyd Phillips, the
big tight end from Forrest City, Ray Trails brother knocking Texas heads off all day
was the best Hog game I ever saw!

All of them but personally the 2000 Cotton Bowl win holds the top spot. I was assigned (what an assignment) to be the host Tx DPS Supervisor/Trooper for the Hogs while they were in Dallas. Wherever they went, I went. Whether it was  team meetings, practice preparations, social events etc... I got to be a integral part of the week. 

For a guy from AR that had lived and died all things Razorbacks in Texas,  since 1979, it was the absolute crème de la crème of  assignments. I'd been a part of a lot of Razorback football games as a Trooper through the years but this and the 2001 Cotton Bowl (OU) were 2 of the more memorable ones.

The 2003? game where Matt Jones absolutely tore them a new one. That was insanely awesome...what a beat down. I wasn't around for the '81 game but it's gotta be similar in that they didn't see it coming. They got hit hard and fast in the mouth and before they knew what hit them the game was over. Propelled us up to a top 10 ranking if I'm not mistaken.

The following year when Jones fumbled the win away was equally as deflating...what an awful deal that was.

Clicked to say "all of them", but several beat me to it.

The first Texas game I remember well was in 1969.  I've heard a lot about the '64 game but not a lot about '65.  Couldn't find it on Youtube but would love to watch it.  It would be great to digitize footage from vintage Arkansas-Texas games and compile highlights or even create a series of games.  Here's brief digitized footage from the 1961 game in Austin.  We lost, but the game was another classic finish and one I have never heard anything about other than Tom McNelly's field goal:

1981 was the greatest. Texas was ranked No. 1 and we were expected to be blown out. I was able to get tickets easily outside the stadium and remember empty seats around me as some fans did not want to watch humiliation at the hands of our arch foe. Instead they missed one of the greatest Hog games ever.

All games mentioned were great wins, but living Texas for 25 years I have to say the Texas Bowl win. I have a lot of good friends that are shorthorn fans. And have so enjoyed explaining to them that the hook-um sign doesn't mean hook-um horns anymore....it signifies the total rushing yards the shorthorns got against the Hogs.  ;D

I was at this game.  I would love to say I remember this or that, but I can't.  I was 6 and sadly, the game I know I specifically remember from that season is the LSU loss in the Cotton Bowl.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OTI2xciGuPQ

That was the 1962 game, not 1961.  And the margin was 4 points, not 7 (as whoever posted the video on YouTube incorrectly states).

Just as the ESPN and SEC Network replays of "The Big Shootout" conveniently omit THE key series of the day (our second possession, when we drove 93 yards to score and go ahead 14 to nothing, only to have it nullified when a Texas DB bitched to an official well after the play that the "other" wide receiver was attempting to block him - he never touched him - and the official threw a flag and called offensive interference), this brief replay omits THE key play of this game.

With about 4 minutes left in the game, Arkansas was at the Texas goal, ahead 3-0.  Obviously, a TD there would have iced the game.  However, as Arkansas fullback Danny Brabham was in the air (many say, ACROSS the goal line), he was hit, fumbled, and Texas recovered in their own EZ.  They then drove 80 yards to score the winning points.

I was at this game.  I would love to say I remember this or that, but I can't.  I was 6 and sadly, the game I know I specifically remember from that season is the LSU loss in the Cotton Bowl.

Texas attempted to field a punt inside their own 10 yard line early in the game, but it was muffed and Martine Bercher recovered in the EZ for a TD. 

Later in the first, Texas was driving in Arkansas territory when their RB was smacked on an inside run, fumbled the ball, and DB Tommy Trantham snatched the ball out of the air and set sail on a 70+ yard return for another TD (Texas blocked the PAT).

Early in the third, Jon Brittenum hit Bobby Crockett for a TD pass and the Hogs let 20-0.  Texas then staged a fantastic comeback and let 24-20 with under 6 minutes to go.  They kicked off to Arkansas, and Brittenum continually hit Crockett on short sprint-out passes, the last one inside the Texas 2 yard line. Jon scored on a QB sneak with just over 2 minutes to go, and the Razorbacks held on for a scintillating 27-24 win.

I'm 2 - 2 in games I've seen vs Texas in person.

The losses—1975 and 1989. We redeemed both in a way. In '75, we ended up in a 3-way tie for the SWC after demolishing Texas A&M, en route to the Cotton Bowl championship. The '89 loss was awful, but the next week was one of the best Hog games in history—Quinn Grovey out-dueling Andre Ware and Houston.

The wins—my freshman year at the U of A and the 42-11 pounding of the No. 1 Horns. A beat-down from the opening snap. Maybe I'll never see a game as entertaining as this one. Always in the conversation for the best Texas memory. And, this was after we lost to TCU the game before.

Then there was the Year-2000 Cotton Bowl. Nothing wrong with that one. As mentioned above, we held them to negative-yards rushing.

My favorites that I didn't see 'live'—Matt Jones in Austin. He and Cedric Cobbs running through the Longhorns D like they weren't allowed to tackle us.

And this one is on many people's list—1979 in Little Rock—and for good reason. It had been a long time since we had beaten them. For me this was the first Texas win in my football-watching consciousness. Huge win. And Gary Anderson was fantastic.

2000 Cotton Bowl was nice.

I believe that was the first sporting event that was filmed and telecasted in high def by Fox.
