There have been a flurry of on the field proposals this year. It seems like players are catching the love bug during their games on weekends like never before. Most of the proposals come on the sideline after an impressive win.
But not this one.
Ahead of their matchup against the SEC conference rival Missouri Tigers, defensive tackle Bijhon Jackson proposed to his girlfriend on the field. She said yes, and the two shared an embrace, and Bret Bielema didn’t look amused.
The Razorbacks haven’t had the kind of year they thought they’d have when the season first started. They’ve stumbled to a 4-7 mark and won’t be appearing in a bowl game. Perhaps fueled by the love on their sideline, the Razorbacks are fighting tooth and nail with the Tigers.
After jumping out to an early lead in the first quarter, the Razorbacks have been playing catchup ever since. They regained the lead again early in the fourth quarter, and have scored over 40-points against an FBS opponent for only the third time this season.
