Razorbacks Set for Senior Night at Razorback Stadium

Fayetteville, AR-

Game Number 10 this season for Arkansas is rivalry week for the Hogs and prior to the Battle for the Golden Boot, Senior Night Festivities take place in Fayetteville.

"Everyone says it, you don't think it's gonna come by quick, but all the sudden here you are," Senior Hjalte Froholdt said.

The Hogs' starting left guard is playing at Arkansas all the way from Denmark. Then there's a senior linebacker, Dre Greenlaw right down the road from Fayetteville High.

 "At the end of the day, Fayetteville is home and it's been home for me for awhile, so I'm blessed to be able to play in front of my family. I'm blessed to be a Razorback," Greenlaw said.

Right Guard Johnny Gibson is well aware of the Arkansas-LSU Matchup, and its been that way for Gibson for awhile, being from Dumas.  But the walk out on to the field for senior night...well, that is hard to describe, as sometimes, emotions take over.

"It's the end of the home season, and I'm trying not to think about it.  It's almost here and I don't know how I'm going to respond to it," Gibson said.

Then there's the response from Louisiana Native Jared Cornelius as the Hogs' begin a three-game stretch to close the season.

"At the end of the season, it means something, it's a trophy game, you can physically take it and show it around, so it's a big deal to us, and big deal to fans as well," Cornelius said.

Santos Ramirez, like Cornelius, from Shreveport, also playing his last game at Razorback Stadium.

"This means everything to me, being from Louisiana, it is a thing where I put everything on the line. It hasn't been the best year for me or the team, but I wanna give everything I got," Ramirez notes.

Kickoff 6:30 p.m. on the SEC Network.
