Arkansas will make a rare trip to College Station this week when the Razorbacks visit Texas A&M. The site of that rivalry has been heavily discussed this week after it was announced that next year’s game would return to Arlington, Texas after this year was moved to a campus site because of the pandemic.

Coach Sam Pittman weighed in on the Aggies and the site of the game on Wednesday on the SEC coaches media teleconference.

“We are excited to go to College Station, none of our guys have been there, just a really good looking football team,” Pittman said. “Well, we’d obviously rather play in the neutral site, if we could. But we’re looking forward to going down there and next year playing at Dallas stadium. We’ll look forward to playing in there too so there’s not a whole lot that I as a coach can do about that and and we are going to go play on there and then play them in Dallas. Next year and we’re excited about both venues.”

About the Aggies specifically, Pittman said the Aggies’ physical size, their offensive line really stand out, and Isaiah Spiller is really good, Kellen Mond has been there forever, as well as the defensive backs being physical.

“They have a really solid football team, ranked in the top 10 and should be,” Pittman said.

Does Pittman consider it a rivalry?

“I think so. When I was here before we certainly did,” Pittman said. “I think you can feel it in the atmosphere a bit more this week, so I believe they do.”
