For Razorback fans attendingSaturday's football season opener against Louisiana at Donald W. ReynoldsRazorback Stadium, there are a variety of new ways to get involved, includingin helping welcome Arkansas head coach Bret Bielema and the team to the fieldwith a new team entrance sequence that includes a traditional Hog Call justminutes before kickoff.

Shortly after the Razorback Marching Band forms the "A" in the north end zone,fans will be asked to join the band and cheerleaders in a Hog Call. As thecheer concludes, Coach Bielema and the Razorbacks will burst through the "A" totake the field. As the band and spirit squads clear the field for the start ofthe game, a special kickoff video will be played on the video board to helpmaintain the fan excitement during the interval before the opening kickoff ofthe game while utilizing some of the program's most time honored traditions.


The new kickoff video will makeits debut on Saturday, but fans can get a sneak preview on Twitter by followingVice Chancellor and Director of Athletics Jeff Long (@JeffLongUA). On Friday atNoon, Long will tweet out a teaser of the video that will be used on game day.


Coach Bret Bielema is alsoencouraging Razorback fans to help out the defense when the opposing team facesthird down. By utilizing the abbreviated Hog Call Razorback fans havetraditionally used on kickoffs, the third-down cheer will help raise the noiselevel in the stadium in a way unique to the Razorbacks.

At the snap of the football, fans shouldfinish the Hog Call with "Pig Sooie."
