Broyles' first win at Arkansas was against A&M

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - Arkansas' matchup with Texas A&M this week brings back a fine memory for Frank Broyles.

Broyles' first victory as Razorbacks coach - after six straight losses - came against the Aggies in 1958.

Broyles spoke Monday at the Little Rock Touchdown Club, sharing some of his memories from his half-century with the Razorbacks. That 21-8 win at Texas A&M was the start of an 8-game winning streak, and Arkansas went on to finish at least tied for first in the Southwest Conference in 1959, '60 and '61.

Those days are long gone now, and so is the Southwest Conference, but nostalgic fans will have their chance to reminisce this week as the Razorbacks prepare to play the Aggies on Saturday at the Dallas Cowboys' new stadium.
