Lifting the Curse of Marc Curles Came Just in Time for These Hogs

Arkansas football may be the most cursed program in the country. At least the most cursed program in the SEC.

Saturday’s win over Florida was the exception that proves the rule.

Arkansas beat the Gators, 39-36, in overtime when KJ Jefferson found Tyrone Broden in the end zone on the Hogs’ first possession of the extra frame. It came after the Razorbacks’ defense limited Florida to a field goal. Afterward, mayhem. The win not only snapped a six-game losing streak, but also provided the program its first-ever win in Gainesville.

First. Ever. Win.

Florida has had a strong program for the better part of the last 30 years, the amount of time Arkansas has been in the Southeastern Conference, but zero wins anywhere with more than a couple games played there is actually a bit hard to believe.
