LITTLE ROCK, Ark. – The Hogs are moving into week three of college football season looking to hold their no loss record.

On Saturday, Arkansas has a late 6:30 p.m. kickoff in Razorback Stadium against Brigham Young University (BYU). Both teams head into the game with a 2-0 record. For those not in Fayetteville this weekend, fans can catch the game on ESPN2 or stream it on the ESPN App.


The Razorbacks hastily worked to take the lead back at the start of 4th, but their attempt was thwarted when Cam Little missed a field goal of 49 yards.

BYU immediately worked to take the lead back on offense and their attempt was successful after Slove hit Chase Roberts for a 7 yard touchdown to put the Cougars up 38-31.

As the Hogs were attempting to tie the game, they failed to convert a 4th & 1, causing a turnover on downs. The Hogs defense managed to stop BYU from scoring, and got the ball back to KJ Jefferson with 4:21 left in the game.

Arkansas’s chances to win the game dwindled away after Jefferson was sacked and fumbled the ball, turning it over back to BYU.

After a missed 50-yard field goal from BYU, the Razorbacks were given the ball back with one last chance to tie the game up.

The Hogs were unable to capitalize on the opportunity and would go on to lose the game 38-31, going to 2-1 on the season.


The Cougars started the 2nd half receiving the ball but were unable to close the gap. After getting the ball back, Arkansas took advantage as AJ Green scored on a 7 yard touchdown to put the Hogs up 31-21.

BYU brought back their momentum with a stop on defense and the Cougars capitalized with a 44-yard field goal by Will Ferrin to bring the lead back within a touchdown. The Hogs lead 31-24.

As the Hogs were battling back to widen the lead, KJ Jefferson was intercepted by Max Tooley. The Cougars office then immediately responded with a 20 yard touchdown toss from Kedon Slovis to Parker Kingston to tie the game up at 31.


BYU started the 2nd quarter with the ball and took advantage when tight end Isaac Rex made a one-handed catch to get the ball down to the 1 yard line. Two plays later LJ Martin scored on a run to put the Cougars in the lead 21-14 after being down 14-0 in the first quarter.

After both teams traded punts, the Hogs offense heated up as the clock got close to the 3 minute mark by getting in the red zone. KJ Jefferson took advantage and hit tight end Luke Hasz for a 19 yard score to tie the game up at 21.

On the ensuing kickoff, the Razorbacks special teams forced and recovered a fumble near the 30 yard line. Jefferson then hit Hasz again to get the ball down in the red zone and the Hogs took advantage by setting up a field goal to put the Hogs up 24-21.


After receiving the kickoff to start the game, the Hogs offense came out firing on all cylinders. The drive ended quickly when AJ Green scored on a 55 yard run to put the Hogs up 7-0.

The Hogs defense responded by forcing a punt from the Cougars which turned into points after Isaiah Sategna returned the ball 80 yards for a touchdown to put the Razorbacks up 14-0.

BYU eventually answered when Deion Smith caught a pass and took it 37 yards for a touchdown to make the score 14-7 Hogs.

The Cougars scored again at the end of the 1st quarter on the strength of a 45 yard touchdown run by LJ Martin to tie the game 14-14.

GameDay Show Recaps:

On this week’s episode of “The KJ Kronicles,” Arkansas star quarterback KJ Jefferson’s grandma spilled the secret to what made Jefferson so big and strong, and according to her it’s not the weight room.

Another moment from the show featured the crafty work of one Arkansas fan that you just have to see to believe. Meet Ben Bryan or as Razorback fans call him, “The Minecraft Guy.”

The Pig Trail Nation crew is back in Fayetteville to bring you this week’s GameDay Show packed full of preparations for this week’s faceoff. Viewers can catch the show in the media player above, or by tuning in to KARK 4 or KNWA at 10 a.m.

Head Coach Sam Pittman has said this week could be faced with challenges as he believes the Cougars are an overall better team this season and could prove to be a hard team to beat.  

“It’s hard to beat a team that hasn’t lost. Both of us haven’t, so someone’s going to have to. I think our kids understand the urgency of this game,” Pittman said during a press conference this week.
