On Saturday, October 1, the #22 D1 Hogs (2-7-0) will look to break a seven game losing streak against the #9 Oklahoma Sooners (3-1-1).  The Razorbacks arrived in Oklahoma City on Thursday night to take on #6 University of Central Oklahoma (4-0-0).  After a scoreless first period, the Bronchos jumped out to a 1-0 midway through the second period.  When the Hogs responded, the two teams went into the second intermission tied 1-1.  UCO broke the tie roughly two minutes into the second period and added an insurance goal minutes later.

Following the 3-1 loss, Arkansas traveled the few short miles to take on Oklahoma on Friday night.  The seesaw affair saw the Hogs jump out to a 1-0 lead after which the Sooners evened things up to make it one apiece.  The teams again traded goals, after which the Hogs added one more at the end of the period to enter the first intermission with a 3-2 lead.  Two unanswered markers for the Sooners, though, left the Razorbacks trailing by one entering the final frame.  Although the Hogs notched the equalizer just a few minutes into the third period, the Sooners scored their fifth roughly midway through the final period en route to a 5-4 win.

Saturday’s matinee affair begins at 4 pm CST.  Fans unable to attend can watch the game online here:  http://ou.edu/tv/watch.html.
