with having their Razorbacks No. 12 jersey retired. Smith was
at Arkansas from (1946-49). Not only did Scott star as
All-American Razorback RB, but he also won a Silver Medal
while representing the U.S.A. in the 1948Summer Olympics.

record-setting kicker. Little actually sought and received
permission from Clyde Scott to wear the jersey number. Upon

|Brandon Burlsworth served as a tremendous inspiration
during his Arkansas career. Bullsworth went from a walk on at
Arkansas to being one of the most celebrated football players
in Razorbacks history. The offensive lineman was not only an
All-American, but he also became the first Arkansas football
player to earn a masters degree before his last football
game.. Burlsworth was drafted by the Indianapolis Colts in the
3rd round of the 1999 NFL Draft, but never had a chance to
play for the franchise. Burlsworth was killed in an auto
accident less than two weeks later. Not only is Burlsworth's
No. 77 Razorbacks football jersey retired, but his locker
remains intact in the Razorbacks locker room.

WITH FRANK, THE RAZORBACKS WERE BROYLED TO PERFECTION
Ever since his 1958 arrival in Fayetteville, Frank Broyles had things cooking at the University
of Arkansas. Through his service as the school's head football coach and athletic director,
Broyles led Razorback athletics to national prominence.
The all-time winningest Arkansas football coach took the Razorback reins after just one year
of head coaching experience with Missouri. Broyles had longed for the Arkansas job because
he saw great potential for the school to have phenomenal success in a state with only one
dominant athletic program.
Broyles crowning moment as the Hog's head football coach was leading the team to a claim
of the 1964 national championship following a Cotton Bowl victory over Nebraska. Arkansas
finished as the nation's only undefeated team when the bowl season had concluded.
However, the policy of selecting a national champ prior to the postseason was in effect for the
AP and UPI polls. They both gave Alabama the title nod before the Crimson Tide's Orange
Bowl loss to Texas. Therefore, Arkansas fans embrace the top ranking they received from the
Football Writers Association of America and the Helms Athletic Foundation since they
recognized the results of the full season.
