RazorFest a smashing success

A school record 40,200 showed up in Fayetteville to watch the offensive explosion that was the first Razorback Spring Game of the Bobby Petrino era.

The Red-White Game was the grand finale of EAS RazorFest, a carnival-style event that benefits youth organizations in Northwest Arkansas and drew an estimated 52,000 people throughout the day. The White team beat the Red 45-14 and put up 601 yards of total offense in 78 plays.
