Arkansas Notes: The Series

Georgia leads the overall series with Arkansas 8-3. The first four meetings came in bowl games with Arkansas as a member of the old Southwestern Conference (SWC). The first was in the 1969 Sugar Bowl where the Hogs defeated the '68 SEC Champion Dawgs 16-2. The next was in the 1976 Cotton Bowl where the '75 SWC Champion Hogs again defeated the Dawgs 31-10. The third matchup came in the 1987 Liberty Bowl where the Dawgs finally beat the Hogs 20-17. Finally, the fourth matchup came in the 1991 Independence Bowl where the Dawgs evened the series, winning 24-15.

The Dawgs are 3-0 all-time in Fayetteville, and 4-0 vs. the Hogs under Mark Richt, including the 2002 SEC Championship Game 30-3.

Last Meeting: 2005 in Athens. 23-20 Dawgs. The biggest news to come out of this game was the injury to D.J. Shockley that kept him out of the Florida game the next week.
