FAYETTEVILLE -- Hogs baseball and basketball spent Saturday on the road, but back on the University of Arkansas campus, officials were breaking ground for what's soon to be the new Student Athlete Success Center.

The 55,000 square-foot facility will help the nearly 500 student athletes in many ways with nutritional, professional and personal development.

On hand for today's event included many members of the University of Arkansas administration staff, such as chancellor Dave Gearhart and athletic director Jeff Long.
