25 for 25: Your say

Fifteen panelists for the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette voted on the top 25 most memorable football games for the Arkansas Razorbacks since they moved to the SEC for the 1992 season. More than 80 games were considered. Over the next two months, our writers will count down from No. 25 to No. 1, providing insight into what made these games special, for better or worse. We also want to hear from our readers. Below are the 25 games that made the countdown, with the games that have not been revealed listed in chronological order. Please mail or email us your rankings 1-25. Your No. 1 game will receive 25 points, No. 2 will receive 24 points and so on. Also, write us a couple of sentences on some or all of the games. If we get enough, we will run selected responses when we unveil the readers’ choice list at the end of our countdown. Include your name and phone number so we can verify the comments if we choose to publish them. Send mail submissions to Arkansas Democrat-Gazette, Attn. Jason Yates/Sports, 121 E.
