The Razorbacks tested for the SWC title every year and went to the Cotton Bowl Classic twice. Hatfield’s groups set up amazing standard season records, however experienced issues dominating bowl matches.

In 1990, Broyles drove the Razorbacks out of the Southwest Conference and into the Southeastern Conference, setting off a significant realignment in school football. In 1995, the Arkansas Razorbacks won its first SEC Western Division Title in football.

On December 10, 1997, Houston Nutt was employed as head football trainer for the Razorbacks (1998 season was his first full season) to supplant Danny Ford, who had been lead trainer starting around 1993, and the 1998 season was his first full season. Exceptionally pursued as a Little Rock Central quarterback, Nutt had been the last select to sign under Broyles, however moved to Oklahoma State University once when he didn’t accommodate Holtz’s hostile plans.

Before long Houston Dale Nutt’s takeoff, Atlanta Falcons lead trainer Bobby Petrino suddenly left the NFL to lead the Hogs.
