UAPB Athletics Director discusses impact of Razorback and Golden Lion game


While the University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff Golden Lions got beat by the University of Arkansas Razorbacks Saturday at War Memorial Stadium at Little Rock, UAPB Athletic Director Chris Robinson said the game was a “worthwhile endeavor for the school.

Appearing on the Oldies 101.3 morning show, Robinson said

Robinson said UAPB received around $600,000 for playing the game, and the schools will face each other again in 2024.

He also talked about the historic nature of the game, which was the first time that the Razorbacks had faced an in-state school in more than 50 years.

While the Golden Lions came out on the short end of the stick in terms of the game, the school’s band, M4 had a crowd of more than 42,000 on its feet with their performance.

M4 and the Razorback Marching Band teamed up to perform Michael Jackson’s Beat It in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month to end the half-time show.
