Sam Pittman was absolutely giddy over the Arkansas win over Texas on Saturday, and especially how the fans enjoyed it by storming the field.

“Look at the fans, isn’t that something,” Pittman said on ESPN. “I’ve got such a great coaching staff, what a great group of kids. They played their tail off, and they were well prepared. I’m just so happy for the kids, and the state of Arkansas.”

Asked about Barry Odom and the defense, Pittman heaped praise on that unit. Pittman said Arkansas was a good team on Saturday, and beat a good team.

“Weren’t they something, and then they got something going when we were trying to milk the clock down,” Pittman said. “I wished we would have stopped them at that point too.”

He also responded to K.J. Jefferson’s performance after the quarterback received some criticism in the last week.

“I think Kendal (Briles) had a really good game plan with him, getting him the ball and allowing him to run,” Pittman said. “I think it really, really got him rolling throwing the football.
