Petrino's 2008 Schedule
Today the University of Arkansas released the Razorback's football schedule for the 2008 season. The schedule contains many intriguing matchups beyond the typical SEC rivalries. First the Hogs will renew their historic rivalry with Texas early this season in a newly renovated Darrell K Royal stadium. They'll also battle former Razorback offensive coordinator Gus Malzahn's high-powered Tulsa offense in Fayetteville. Perhaps the most interesting game of the year will come in late October when former head hog Houston Nutt and his new Ole Miss Rebel squad travels to Razorback stadium to take on his former team.
This schedule is pretty daunting for the new coach and the young players, but fans expectations will be high as ever. Many Razorback fans outside of Arkansas should have an opportunity to watch the team play on national television as many of these games are high profile and will most likely air on ESPN, CBS, or Raycom.
