Fans finding silver lining in first Hogs game


LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - Fans here in central Arkansas turning out in big numbers to start the season.

A big crowd showed at the Buffalo Wild Wings in west Little Rock, and they had plenty to get excited about through the first half. Fans are ready to give Coach Bret Bielema the benefit of the doubt based on how the team played today.

"You kinda wanna see the strengths we have, and we're kind of seeing that. We have a good defensive line and running backs are strong, so we love to come out and see the first game for sure," said Arkansas fan Toby Stephens.

The fans are finding some silver linings in the Hogs first game.

A new way for single Arkansans to meet attracting hundreds


LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - "I'm a single dad," Matt Mittlestat said. Bryant Steele added, "I've been divorced for a little over two years." "My ex-husband deployed and I really don't have a support system in Arkansas at all," Whitney Chase said. These are three different people with similar stories.

"A friend of mine told me I needed to join this singles group. I was like no, and everybody has the same thing, you tell them singles group and it's like oh no! I don't want to be in no singles group," Steele explained. But Steele soon discovered the group was unlike any group he's been a part of before. He said, "I still wasn't ready to date. I was mentally and emotionally damaged."
