Southwest Classic Trophy Available for Photos

The Arkansas Union will host the Southwest Classic Trophy from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. this Friday, Oct. 1, in the Living Room. Students, faculty, staff, guests and Razorback fans are all welcome to come take their photo with the latest trophy acquisition by the Razorback football team.

The Razorbacks defeated the seventh-ranked Texas A&M Aggies this past Saturday in Arlington, Texas, at the annual Southwest Classic. The Hogs defeated the Aggies 20-10, for their first Classic victory in nearly a decade. The win makes Arkansas 4-0 on the season for the first time since 2003 and ranked in the Top Ten for the first time since 2012. Arkansas faces No. 2 Georgia in Athens this Saturday.

Patrons entering the Union must wear masks but will be permitted to remove them momentarily while their photo is being taken. Masks are available for free at the Arkansas Union Information Desk.
