Earlier in the week, Arkansas head coach Mike Anderson wondered aloud whether or not his team's defense, offense, rebounding, and bench play would "travel" in its first true road test of the season Wednesday night against Colorado State. And for a 2-minute, 36-second stretch of the second half -- when the Rams whittled a 22-point deficit down to 7 with 12:15 to play -- Razorback fans were surely beginning to wonder if the football Hogs' second-half-collapse-itis had traveled back to Fort Collins, CO, with the Hoop Hogs.

Not this time, and not these Hogs. 

Arkansas (6-1) put down that Rams run with a 13-0 spurt of its own en route to holding another opponent below 40% shooting, dominating the glass, and flirting with the century mark once again in a dominating 98-74 win at high-altitude Moby Arena, giving the Razorbacks a 6-game winning streak. The finish was a far cry from the 5-1 Razorbacks of a year ago that face-planted, 91-65, against Houston in their first road game of the 2017-18 season, as well as the football Razorbacks who gave up 25 unanswered points late in a 34-27 loss to Colorado State in their first road game of the recently completed 2018 season.
