That was a fun day at R House.

Rutgers Stadium is one place where the mighty SEC still doesn't have a win. This picture was taken as the Scarlet Knights finally scored their first 7 points at the end of the first half.
It was 10-7 in Arkansas' favor when this cannon fired.
Arkansas extended their lead to 24-7 in the third quarter on more Rutgers turnovers, and there were some people who left the Stadium and must be very sorry they did.  A 58-yard punt return for a touchdown by Janarion Grant at the end of the third quarter and two touchdown passes from Gary Nova to Leonte Caroo in the fourth quarter sent the rest of us home very happy indeed with a final score of Rutgers 28 and Arkansas 24. It was a great day for everybody who spent his or her afternoon and early evening On The Banks (except for that sizable contingent of Razorback fans in the Stadium this afternoon).
And to follow up on my last blog post, there was a very spirited singing of "On The Banks of the Old Raritan" in section 109 before and after the game, with the correct opening lines.
And to follow up on another earlier post this week, I'm sure the bar owners in Fayetteville, Arkansas are very happy tonight.
