FAYETTEVILLE, AR -- Saturday's game against Texas A&M is sold out, but Hog fans are camping outside Razorback Stadium to score prime seats.

"You get to hang out on Friday afternoon, Saturday morning, go to a football game," said sophomore Austin Jones.

"We want to be first or second row and we want to paint up," said sophomore Tanner Wilson.

"I camp out to get a good spot, like i want Johnny Manziel to hear me," said sophomore Scott Smith.

And they are hoping for a good game against Texas A&M.

"We have the 6th best rush offense in the nation and Texas A&M's rush defense is 99th in the nation, so as long as we can keep Manziel off the field with long drives and run down the clock," said sophomore Chris Cole.

Rain is in the forecast.

"I'll buy a hat. That's my game plan," said junior Frankie Hurd.

Students are not letting the predicted wet weather extinguish their spirit.

"They can tough it out if they're true Hog fans, but I'm sure the A&M guys will wimp out by halftime," said Wilson.

"We're going to paint up regardless of rain, get some clear ponchos, that should take care of that," said Cole.

And as for sleeping in a tent, it is all part of the experience.

"Just being with the friends, seeing the razorbacks play a top ten team in the country and the Heisman winner last year," said Sam Holloway.

"If the football team, they work hard for us almost every day, you know they're here for our entertainment... To see all of these people out here, there for them, they should feel good about that," said Hurd.
