FAYETTEVILLE, circa 1960: For decades the dominant rivalry for state sports was the University of Arkansas Razorbacks vs. the Texas Longhorns in the old Southwestern Conference. The series reached its high point on Dec. 6, 1969, in a battle between No. 1 Texas and No. 2 Arkansas with President Nixon in the stands beside Gov. Winthrop Rockefeller. Alas, the Hogs lost, 15-14.
