With another year of Bikes, Blues & BBQ safely behind us, Fayetteville seems pretty quiet this morning.
Those who like it this way had better enjoy it while it lasts, though. Come Saturday, things will be alive once again when the Hogs take on Auburn at 6 p.m. inside Razorback Stadium.
After an epic comeback win over Texas A&M this past weekend, the Razorbacks jumped eight spots to No. 10 in The Associated Press college football poll.
With Auburn jumping back into the poll all the way to No. 15 and ESPN’s decision to televise Saturday’s game nationally, expect a busy weekend in Fayetteville.
Locals: Jess Hoggard, Dagen Ames, Heidi Holland, Dan Coody, Henry Gaston, Olivia Hardgrave, Jessica Peyton, Kara Isham, Pamela Holloway, William Grayson, Andrew Money and Michael F. Koen II.
