Saturday To-Do: Arkansas vs. New Mexico

ARKANSAS VS. NEW MEXICO
6 p.m., War Memorial Stadium. $55.

It's a given, we're going to pound the hapless Lobos, who've won two games in their last 25. But as Joe Adams' miraculous punt return in the season opener demonstrated, you can find drama even in blowouts.

Also, you get to do a lot of chest thumping and hear the names of newcomers — like Alonzo Highsmith, Kody Walker and Marquel Wade — who seem poised to contribute this year. At press time, there were still some tickets available in the southeast corner of the stadium.

But even if it's a sell-out, there's always tailgating; it'll be glorious in these spring-like temps. If drinking too much and playing Baggo with the masses and paying $55 for a ticket isn't your bag, the game is on ESPNU, too.
