Arkansas-A&M, 1957

One of the few games between the Higs and Aggies that I ever saw in person was the 1957 game in Fayetteville. A&M was ranked in the top five and had All-Americans John David Crow and a lineman named Krueger. The Hogs led 6-0 until Crow barreled into the south end zone (where I was seated in the wooden bleachers) to allow the Aggies to escape, 7-6. While I was greatly disappointed, I look back on it as a historic game. Frank Broyles arrived as the head coach the next fall.

I was a student at the time and at the game. One of my memories is Billy Kyser was playing defensive bac and John David Crow broke into the backfield. Kyser was positioned for a perfect tackle and Crow ran over him like he wasn’t there.

Second game I attended

Remember the hedge and gate under the scoreboard.
HS students could get in there if they wore their letter jacket

There was a berm on the SW corner, long since covered up by section 101.
We would hang out there and watch the game
