THV11 covers Arkansas’ final game of the season against Missouri

Arkansas to face No.10 Missouri in 2023 season finale
Arkansas will be hosting Missouri in their last game of the 2023 season at Donald W. Reynolds Razorback Stadium on Friday at 3:00 p.m. Central. The game will be broadcast on THV11. Arkansas, entering as 7 1/2 point underdogs, is looking for their first win against a ranked opponent this season. Head coach Sam Pittman’s team will be looking to end the season on a high note despite not being able to qualify for a bowl game.

Arkansas’ motivation for this game is higher than usual as athletic director Hunter Yurachek announced that Pittman will be returning as coach in 2024. On the other hand, Missouri, with a 9-2 record, is aiming to secure their bowl destination and achieve a 10-win season for the first time since 2014.

The key matchup to watch will be between Arkansas QB KJ Jefferson and the Missouri defense. Jefferson recently set career passing records and will be looking to lead the Razorbacks to a victory. On the other side, RB Cody Schrader, who leads the SEC in rushing yards, will be a player to watch for Missouri.

Some interesting facts and figures for the game include Pittman’s recent job security questions, which were put to rest by the announcement that he will be staying on as the head coach. It’s also worth noting that Missouri’s head coach, Eli Drinkwitz, has ties to Arkansas, having graduated from Arkansas Tech and worked as an offensive coordinator at Springdale High.

Coverage of the game will begin at 3:00 p.m. Central on THV11, with Rich Waltz and Aaron Taylor on the call and Amanda Guerra reporting from the sidelines. It promises to be an exciting end to the season for both teams.
