BYU went into SEC country on Saturday night and made an impression both on the field and in the stands.
The Cougars rallied from a double-digit deficit in both halves to beat Arkansas 38-31 in front of 74,821 fans, setting the stage for BYU to go into Big 12 play next week with an unbeaten record (3-0).
One year after the Cougars hosted Arkansas in a 52-35 Razorbacks win at LaVell Edwards Stadium, Arkansas fans shared what they thought of the BYU fan base that showed up at Razorback Stadium.
Here’s a sampling of what Arkansas fans said about the Cougars.
Thank you, BYU! Hope Fayetteville was everything you hoped and wanted! Bit sad, especially on my bday. Love this matchup but it hurt a bit today.— The Hogs Probs🐗 (@TheHogsProbs) September 17, 2023
Ok but for real. I was in Provo last year. The BYU fans are nothing but class. If you encounter them, be nice. I’m not telling you to be quiet during the game, I’m just telling you to make their experience in Arkansas what ours was in Utah— Nebr🅰️sk🅰️ Hog f🅰️n 🐗 (@NebraskaHogFan) September 16, 2023
I wanna throw this out there. BYU has some of the cleanest away Unis in the country.— Garrett Knowles (@GKnowles64) September 17, 2023
BYU fans delivered a truck of food to a Fayetteville food pantry and are collecting food donations at their tailgate party at Wilson Park today.— Ali Noland (@alimbrady) September 16, 2023
Cougs, your hospitality in Provo is legendary, and Razorbacks fans thank you for your generosity and kindness.https://t.co/BvSz2aWLXN https://t.co/uvIA3d7qDZ
BYU fans also shared the hospitality they were shown at Razorback Stadium and around Fayetteville, Arkansas.
On a road trip from Nashville, TN to Fayetteville, AR to cheer on @BYUfootball. These @RazorbackFB fans surprised us last night and paid for our dinner! They told us that BYU fans treated the Arkansas fans extremely well last year in Provo.

I've traveled all around the country to watch BYU play. Arkansas was definitely one of my favorites. Their fans are one of the best and most welcoming fan base I've encountered. Couldn't walk 10ft without being offered tailgate food— BIG XII Shane 🤙 (@LiftingCoug) September 17, 2023
I will forever pull for Arkansas #WooPigSooie
