Hog Fans On The Road For Season Opener

FAYETTEVILLE (KFSM)- The Razorback football team will play against Auburn Saturday (Aug. 30) at 3 p.m. The hogs open the season on the road for the first time since 1999, according to the University of Arkansas.

Mike Cormack is part of the Razorback Club, which is an extension of the Razorback Foundation. They have clubs all over Arkansas and the country.

Cormack will be traveling to Auburn to watch the Razorbacks play. His nickname for the past 20 years has been “Captain Hogmerica,” he said.

Cormack’s prediction is Arkansas 31, Auburn 28. Cormack was born and raised in Fort Smith but lives in Van Buren. He went to the University of Arkansas in Fayetteville on a golf scholarship.

“I went to my first game in 1976 and I’ve been hooked ever since,” Cormack said. “Since we’ve been in the SEC, I’ve missed maybe five or six total football games since ’92 and I’m very proud of that.”

“I hope the Lord willing I can continue to go to games up until I’m 100 years old,” he said.

Cormack said his wife and friends call him crazy because of his passion for all Razorback sports.

“It’s kind of my everything, of course,” Cormack said. “Obviously, the church and my family come first, some people wonder sometimes but we remedy that.”

“We have church on the road, we have church at Baum Stadium for baseball,” he said. “So there are ways to get around it if you want but it’s kind of a way of life being a Razorback fan that goes on the road.”
