CWS Jello Shot Challenge

The Arkansas Razorback baseball team played its first game of the College World Series in Omaha today, putting a 17-2 thumping on #2 Stanford. About a mile and a half from the stadium, Rocco’s Pizza & Cantina was hosting its annual CWS Jello Shot Challenge. The official Twitter page of the CWS Jello Shot Challenge has come to our attention because Hog fans have been putting away a slew of Jello shots the past couple days compared to other fan bases. And today Hog fans really went off.

Here was the leader board pre-game:

The record number of Jello shots purchased during the CWS Jello Shot Challenge is 2,965 shots set by Mississippi State a year ago. It might not last through the weekend. We’ll keep you updated. The Hogs play the winner of Ole Miss vs. Auburn Monday night at 6 p.m. Woo Pig.
