Arkansas State and Arkansas are rivals in football, to the extent two programs can be rivals when one plays in the SEC and the other plays in the Sun Belt and the two have never met each other on the field.
And although the Razorbacks are the more accomplished program historically, they are only 2-5 on the season (and 0-4 in conference play), while the Red Wolves are 4-2. In fact, Football Outsiders' S&P+ rating system has Arkansas State as the 35th best team in the country, compared to Arkansas down at No. 90. So with all that in mind, maybe it makes sense that Red Wolves coach Blake Anderson is feeling his program enough to crack a brutal joke at Arkansas’ expense.
