Razorback fans have high hopes for Sugar Bowl showdown

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - It's a big night Tuesday for Razorback fans as the eighth ranked Arkansas Razorbacks took on the No. 6 Ohio State Buckeyes and fans at Wings To Go were ready to call them hogs.

Hogs and Buckeye fans came together all under one roof ready for the Sugar Bowl showdown. 

"Everybody is saying Arkansas is going to win, but I hope it's going to be the Buckeyes," says Ohio fan Katiee Curtner.

"Ohio State is going to get whooped," says Hogs fan Kirsten Cooney.

Razorbacks took the field for their first BCS Bowl appearance.  "The SEC is doing well again Ohio State in the bowl.  They're 9-0.  So, I'm hoping it's going to be a really good game," says Ron Eaton.

Fans were on the edge of their seats, but it didn't take long for the hogs to tear down the field for their first touchdown.

There was plenty of high fives, and what goes better with football than wings.  Wings To Go owner Chris Weaver says games like these means good things for business.  "I've probably go 20 to 25 orders already and people haven't even gotten off work yet.  I'd say most people would probably be up 20 to 25% tonight," says Weaver.

As for hog fans, some says it's all going to come down to Arkansas' offense against the Buckeye's defense, and fans have their predictions for the outcome. 

"I'm hoping it's going to be a good close game.  I hope it's no blow out, unless it's for the Razorbacks," says Eaton.

"I want a win from the Razorback.  I want to bet the Buckeyes.  You know how you smash a Buckeye?  With a Mallett," says fan Jaime Callahan.
