Overview

The Razorbacks were crowned Southwest conference champs with a 4-1 SWC record, but the Hogs forfeited the title as a result of playing an ineligible athlete.[1] Ulysses "Heine" Schleuter had told coach Fred Thomsen that he had remaining eligibility, but had played at Nebraska in 1931 and 1932, as well as for Kemper Military School. Schleuter's status wasn't brought out until the SMU game, when a Mustang recognized Schleuter as a former Cornhusker. The title was vacated for 1933.

Dixie Classic

Main Article: 1934 Dixie Classic

The Dixie Classic was the first bowl appearance in Arkansas Razorbacks history. Their opponent, Centenary, was undefeated in the regular season.[1] The game, played in Dallas, was the final Dixie Classic, a predecessor to the Cotton Bowl Classic. The Razorbacks dented the scoreboard first, on a 24 yard hookup from Tom Murphy to Elvin Geiser in the second quarter.[1] The Gentlemen returned with a 20 yard touchdown pass, but missed the extra point to give Arkansas a 7-6 lead. However, a Razorback was called offside, the down was replayed, and Centenary's kicker Chester Weidman's kick was true.[1]

Overview

The Razorbacks said goodbye to The Hill, an on-campus 300-seat stadium used since 1901, and replaced it with Bailey Stadium, known today as Donald W. Reynolds Razorback Stadium. The stadium was first University Stadium, but was quickly changed to Bailey Stadium in honor of then-Arkansas governor Carl Bailey. The Hill was demolished and Mullins Library was placed on the old site.
