It is that magical time of year â€” when the college football and basketball seasons overlap.
Today, Arkansas fans are in for a treat, first with the football team, then later tonight with the hardwood Hogs.
If all goes well, the Razorbacks could be on the road to having a very good football and basketball team in the same season (Iâ€™m looking ahead to 2015).
With a win this afternoon on the road against No. 20 Missouri, the football Razorbacks will be 7-5 and put themselves in a position for a possible Cotton Bowl bid.
On Tuesday, Nov. 25, the Magnet Cove basketball teams got one more game in before the holiday with a road trip to Mena.
The previously undefeated Lady Panthers suffered their first loss of the season at the hands of the 4A Classificationâ€™s Lady Bearcats, but they werenâ€™t the only ones.
Both the junior boys and senior boys stumbled on the road and came home with losses.
The first game of the night saw the Magnet Cove Junior Panthers fall to Mena by the score of 48-18.
The Junior Panthers were held scoreless in the first quarter and trailed 14-0 after the first six minutes.

Thursday Night Football 11/13
Miami (6-4) 22 vs
Buffalo (5-5) 9
Miami QB Ryan Tannehill threw 2 second half touchdowns to rally a comeback victory over Buffalo. Buffalo was moving the ball up and down the field early, but could not seem to find the end zone to cap drivers. They clung to a 9-3 lead as they kept Miami in check. Tannehill was able to rally his teamâ€™s offense to score 19 unanswered points to seal the game and second place in the AFC East.
Houston (5-5) 23 @
Cleveland (6-4) 7
I have said before that I enjoy being proven wrong on certain occasions.
Last week, I had picked the Arkansas Razorbacks to lose at home to LSU (a top 20 team), even though the Hogs were favored in the game.
I took a break from moving to Malvern to sit down with my father to watch the game Saturday night, fully expecting my prediction to come true.
Even when Arkansas took the early 10-0 lead, I kept waiting for that other shoe to drop, as it had so many times during that seasons-long conference losing streak.
On Thursday, Nov. 13, the Ouachita Lady Warriors hosted the Lady Eagles from Benton Harmony Grove and had little trouble dispatching the visitors by the score of 60-28.
The Lady Warriors outscored Benton Harmony Grove 13-6 in the first quarter to set the tone for the game.
Caroline Burnett hit the first of her three 3-pointers to help give Ouachita the advantage.
In the second quarter, the Lady Warriors saw their lead grow to 30-16 by the time the two teams broke for halftime.
