Out of all schools in the SEC, the Arkansas Razorbacks
have won more national championships. Since 1894 Arkansas has been playing football and has been a member of the SEC since 1991. All home games are played at the Donald W. Reynolds Razorback Stadium or at War Memorial Stadium. The Razorbacks are the only team in the NCAA Division I that has two football stadiums.
During football game day and other sporting events, you can normally hear the Hog Call, "Woo, Pig, Sooie!" This was started when some farmers came to a game and was "calling the hogs" during the plays and the cheer caught on. It is by far the schools most well known cheer. The Razorback Hog has not always been the mascot. Since the official colors are cardinal red and white, the Cardinal was originally the mascot. In 1910, after the students already calling the team the Razorbacks, a vote was cast to change the mascot. At home football games, the live Russian Boar is brought to be the live mascot. His name is Tusk III. Other costumed mascots include Boss Hog, Big Red, Sue E, and Pork Chop. The Arkansas Razorback Marching Band is one of the oldest in the United States because it was started in 1874 in the form of a Cadet Corps Band. The band always plays the Alma Mater and Fight Song at the sporting events, especially the football games.
