2022-2023 cbhsports College Football Preview:Arkansas

Head coach Sam Pittman led Arkansas football to its best season since 2011 with a 9-4 (4-4) record in the SEC, the toughest conference to play in America. For Pittman and the hogs, following last season up with a 2022-2023 season that is just as good or better will be difficult as they will play a much more difficult non-conference slate than it did last season. The hogs will face expected top 25 teams Cincinnati (9/3) and BYU (10/15) as well as fellow tough team Liberty (11/5; Homecoming) led by former Ole Miss coach Hugh Freeze in non-conference play. However, Arkansas will get Alabama (10/1), LSU (11/12), and Ole Miss (11/19) at home inside Donald W. Reynolds Razorback Stadium. Pittman will look to avenge two losses to Auburn in his tenure and score his first win over the tigers on “The Plains” come October 29 and will also host former Arkansas coach Bobby Petrino and his Missouri State Bears come September 17 for Family Weekend in Fayetteville. Arkansas will not play in Little Rock and War Memorial Stadium as well. An even better season its expected in Fayetteville, and Razorback nation cannot wait.
