Rankings from AP Poll

The 1999 Arkansas Razorbacks football team represented the University of Arkansas during the 1999 NCAA Division I-A football season.[1]

Arkansas won the 2000 Cotton Bowl vs the Texas Longhorns on New Year's Day. It was the first college football game to kickoff in the 21st Century. It was also Arkansas' first bowl victory since the 1985 Holiday Bowl, and the Razorbacks first Cotton Bowl win since the 1976 Classic. Freshman running back Cedric Cobbs was named the Cotton Bowl offensive MVP. Senior quarterback Clint Stoerner became the school's all-time leading passer. Stoerner also redeemed himself versus Tennessee, after fumbling away the ball late in the game in Knoxville in 1998. That fumble led to a Tennessee touchdown that won the game, 28-24. This season, Stoerner threw the game-winning touchdown pass to Anthony Lucas late in the fourth quarter versus the Volunteers in Fayetteville, leading Arkansas to a victory by the same score, 28-24. Razorback fans tore down the goal posts after the win, and carried them to Dickson Street in downtown Fayetteville in celebration.
