Sep 11, 2021; Fayetteville, Arkansas, USA; Arkansas Razorbacks head coach Sam Pittman talks to Texas Longhorns head coach Steve Sarkisian after the game at Donald W. Reynolds Razorback Stadium. Arkansas won 40-21.

“This was not a performance I was anticipating,” said Steve Sarkisian, the first-year Texas head football coach, who now has a real quarterback quandary on his hands among other issues. “But we’ll find out about ourselves and what we’re made of, because I really believe this one game’s not going to define us. But we’ve got work to do, that’s for sure.”

Chants of “S-E-C!” echoed throughout the night. Arkansas fans in the crowd of 74,531, many wearing “Beat Texas” or “Tuck Fexas” T-shirts, stormed the field afterward. For the Hogs (2-0), it was a night they’ll never forget.
