“The City of Little Rock has been proud to play host to many of the most memorable games in the history of Arkansas Razorbacks Football. War Memorial Stadium has long provided Razorback fans from across the State with the perfect environment to come together to celebrate the team and Autumn in Arkansas,” said Mayor of Little Rock, Frank Scott Jr. “The Capital City is ready for the Razorbacks and their fans to arrive in town, and we have planned a full slate of activities, before and after the game, to show all of our residents and visitors how we roll in the Rock. If you’re a lifelong Razorbacks fan, or have never seen a game before, join us for an experience like no other.”
