Happy Hogs after rolling the Red Raiders

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - The Razorbacks rolled into Texas and rumbled away with a signature win.

After pummeling an overmatched Nicholas State last week, Texas Tech figured to provide a stronger test.

The Hogs passed that test by running strong all game long, and that makes for happy fans.

Before the win, THV11 caught up with some Razorback fans. Some of them live in Texas, and others were determined to get here even though the weather got in the way for some of them. They had faith in this team from the beginning.

One group of Razorback fans started calling the Hogs at 5 a.m.

"I've always been a Hog fan."

But when it comes to a matchup between the Hogs and the Red Raiders, at this tailgate, not everyone calls the Hogs.

"Being at the Texas Tech game, it's kind of rough."

His creations include a from-scratch Butterfinger bar, a ganache shaken inside a Skippy peanut butter jar, and a variety of donuts (he even debuted churros this week).

Celebrating National Rice Month in September

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) – September is National Rice Month, and Arkansas provides locally grown rice for over half the nation each year.

To celebrate, Steve Orlicek with the Arkansas Rice Council visited THV11 to talk about the cause.

The Arkansas Rice Council is the promotional arm of the rice industry in Arkansas.

Arkansas rice is locally-grown by family farmers right in our backyard. It's easy to eat local, just look for brands in the grocery store with a Grown-in-the-USA label.

Over half of the nation's rice is locally grown by family farmers in Arkansas. Arkansas is the number one rice-producing state in the nation. This year, Arkansas will produce over 50 percent of the nation's rice.
