Arkansas plays its fourth straight game away from home on Saturday, traveling to Houston to battle the Cougars for the second consecutive year. For the first time in 11 years, Arkansas is playing four consecutive games away from Fayetteville before the start of conference play.

Last season in Bud Walton Arena, the Razorbacks knocked off Houston 84-72 behind a season-high 17 points from Daryl Macon. Arkansas enters Saturday’s game with a nine-game winning streak against teams from the state of Texas, including a 7-0 mark a season ago.

The Razorbacks have played 240 minutes this season and led for 195 minutes and 29 seconds. For the first time in 23 years, Arkansas has scored 90+ points in four of its first six games. The Razorbacks last accomplished the feat in 1994-95.

The Razorbacks have a +72 scoring margin in the first half through six games, and Arkansas’ 35-point win against UConn handed the Huskies their worst defeat in the last 40 years. The Razorbacks last win of at least 35 points against a high-major school came on Feb. 10, 2010 against LSU. The last 35-point win against a high-major non-conference opponent came on Dec. 2, 1993 against Missouri.
