10-7 win over Nebraska in the 1965 Cotton Bowl.

76-72 win over Duke in the 1994 NCAA tournament championship game.

Any and all of John McDonnell's 40 national championships in cross country and track & field.

Tough call on this one!

1. Hatfield and the punt return in Austin for the win over t-sip u.

2. The Southern Cal beatdown at WMS.

3. Thrashing Blo U in the Orange Bowl.

Lots of honorable mentions: Nebraska for the national title, Sugar Bowl over Georgia, Cotton Bowl over Georgia, wins over texass in 71/79 and the blowout in Fayetteville with Tom Jones and Gary Anderson, wins over the Aggies at WMS. Not a lot of earth shaking wins since joining the SEC in my opinion. LSU three times sticks out especially the Petrino win in 2010.

Beating a team to win a NC HAS to be at the top of the list. All others are the honorable mention variety.

A consolation game and in season Non conference game ahead of a basketball NC winning game........that’s crazy.

I'm gonna pick from games I experienced and not the glory days.  I'm a '78 model so I missed all of them.

Football
1.  #1 LSU 2007
2.  Texas A&M 1988
3.   Tennessee 1999

Thinking back, we've played in some big games, but rarely do we win them.

Basketball
1.  Duke 1994  NCAA Championship
2.  Duke 1990 (Preseason NIT Semifinal)  When we beat Duke I knew Nolan Richardson was reaching new levels of competitiveness.  Duke had beaten us in the final four a year before
3.  Kentucky 1993  UK's first conference game in Barnhill.  That crowd was electric and the Hogs were on fire.

Without first looking at anyone's response, I will say:

1954 over Ole Miss at WMS - I think this legitimized Arkansas' football program.
January 1st, 1965 over Nebraska 10-7 for national championship.
January 2nd, 1978 a surprise ass kicking over a very good Oklahoma team.

Football?

1. Arkansas beating Nebraska in the 1965 Cotton Bowl, to become National Champs (suck it, Bama)
2. Arkansas beating LSU in 2010, to go on and play in our first & only BCS Bowl


And... my personal favorite (and a game I'm surprised hasn't been mentioned yet...):

3. 1991 Hogs beating Texass at War Memorial, our last year in the SWC.  A lot of fans stayed in the stands long after the game was over, kept cheering & just didn't want to leave... and the players came back out of the locker room & the place went WILD.  ::hornsdown::


I understand many mentioning the 2007 win at LSU, but hell... Kentucky beat LSU that year, also. Kentucky.

Just in my life, I was born in 80 so my memory goes back to about the 88-89 season, I would say to me the biggest are

1999 Tennessee (I wanted that one so bad, brought tears to my eyes lol)
2010 LSU- that’s one to me where it felt like we’re here where we belong. We’re one of the best
1998 SMU- I know that may not seem like much but at the time it was huge. We finally had a decent offense and finally got over that SMU hump
