None has possibly been tougher than Knoxville's Lindsey Nelson Stadium, though, when it comes to baseball.
Thanks to a pair of wins this weekend, however, it appears Arkansas' Knoxville woes are changing for the better.
Before this weekend's series against the Vols, the Diamond Hogs were just 5-14 all-time in games played in Lindsey Nelson Stadium. Arkansas had also won just one three-game series in Knoxville -- back in 2000 -- before clinching the series win with a 4-3 victory Saturday.
Today, Arkansas has a chance to go even one further when it tries to do something no Razorback team has ever done.
Sweep the Vols on their home field.
"We've taken the first two and now we've got a chance to go 3-0," Arkansas coach Dave Van Horn said. "And we've got a chance to do something we've never done since I've ever been in the program and that's to win all three at Tennessee."
Saturday saw a late-arriving crowd make their way to Lindsey Nelson Stadium. But give the Volunteers fans a break. They had a excuse.
While the Arkansas-Tennessee baseball was getting under way, the Volunteers' Orange-White spring football game was still in progress just a few blocks away in Neyland Stadium.
Steak Dinner For Duke
Jess Todd picked up the pitching win Saturday, working 2 1/3 innings of scoreless relief. But after letting an inherited runner score in the seventh, Todd joked he got a victory which just as easily could have gone to starter Duke Welker.
"Duke pitched a great game," Todd said. "I snuck the win from him, so I think I'll have to buy him a steak dinner tonight."
