After leading the University of Arkansas Cardinals' football team to an epic 16–0 victory against LSU in 1909, coach Hugo Bezdek referred to his players as "a wild band of Razorback hogs." The nickname quickly caught on, and the team has since embraced both the name and the mascot's wild ferocity, as evidenced by a tenacious fighting style and the players' uncanny ability to locate truffles buried in the end zone. With apparel, jewelry, and housewares bearing the legendary helmet hog, The Hog Zone—unaffiliated with the university itself—helps fans and alumni celebrate more than 100 years of UA pigskin tradition. In addition to stocking car decals, earrings, and T-shirts for both kids and adults, The Hog Zone hosts football-themed birthday parties for all complete with games and activities such as learning dances and chants to cheer on the team during physics exams.
