The 1983 Arkansas Razorbacks football team represented the University of Arkansas during the 1983 NCAA Division I-A football season. Ron Faurot received first-team All-American honors as a defensive lineman for the Hogs.

The Hogs would hire Ken Hatfield, who shined for the Hogs as a defensive back on the 1964 National Championship team, as their new head football coach.[1] He is still a large proponent of the triple option offense in college football.[2]
