"It's the best time of the year," said Razorback fan J.P. Rogers.
March madness, the time of year when rabid basketball fans catch the fever.
"Well I'll be calling in, I'll be late just don't tell nobody," said Razorback fan Scott Hoffman
For the first time since 2001 the Razorbacks are enjoying the festivities.
If you can't be at the game the next best place to catch the action is with fans at a local restaurant.
"You can watch it by yourself at home and that is fine but it is just awesome being out with a group of people," said Hoffman.
"Around Bucknell they are trying to barbeque some pigs but, we going to try to fry some chicken wings, and cook Bucknell," said Wings To Go owner Rodney Rogers.
While chicken wings were the main course back here in the kitchen the only thing on everyone else's minds were Hogs.
"We have 13 televisions and every game we have going on right now and for the rest of the day is all Razorbacks," said Rodney Rogers.
Some fans came with friends and others like Scott Hoffman and J.P. Rogers shared a meal, a table and the game with new found friends
"Well when you are a Razorback fan it doesn't matter. Razorback fans are all part of one big family," said Hoffman.
"Hog fans are one nation. One nation under Hogs. Go hogs," said J.P. Rogers.
