Arkansas dominating Jell-O shot competition

It’s always a party when the college baseball world takes over Omaha, Nebraska, every June for the Men’s College World Series, but one local joint kicks things up a notch.

At Rocco’s Pizza and Cantina, you can see three of America’s primary cultural pillars collide: baseball, a competitive spirit and booze. The restaurant hosts a Jell-O shot competition where all eight fanbases in the CWS compete to down more servings of the liquor-filled gelatin than any other.

A bunch of rowdy college baseball fans competitively downing hundreds of Jell-O shots is right in our wheelhouse here at For The Win, and we’ve been watching the competition with bated breath throughout the week.

The competition was neck-and-neck through the first few days, and while Arkansas fans eventually began to pull away, Ole Miss and Texas A&M still sat very much in range entering the second day of Round 1 action in the CWS.

But it seems there are, in fact, two things Arkansas fans do better than any other team: Get amped up as hell over a hog call and down Jell-O shots like there’s no tomorrow.

When Razorback fans began pouring into Rocco’s ahead of Arkansas’ CWS opener on Saturday against Stanford, they tossed back nearly 1,000 Jell-O shots in just three hours, breaking their lead wide open.

Let’s take a look at the updated scoreboard, shall we?

Yeah, that might be curtains, folks.

Arkansas undoubtedly has one of the most rabid fanbases in all of college baseball. The team has made it to three of the last four CWS, but it is still searching for its first national title after it finished as the national runner-up in 2018.

Regardless of what happens for the team in Omaha this year, Arkansas fans should still take pride in drinking, or uh, slurpingall other fans under the table.
