2018 Fall Exhibition Schedule
Oct. 5 – vs. Wichita State (6 p.m.)
Admission for the game with the Shockers will be free. The Razorbacks are asking each fan to bring non-perishable food items and new or gently used coats to benefit the Salvation Army and the Jane B. Gearhart Full Circle Campus Food Pantry, who will be collecting these items at the stadium gates.
Seating throughout the stadium will be first-come, first-serve and parking will be free and the Hog Pen will also be open. Gates will open at 5 p.m.
Light concessions will be available via cash only and fans will also be allowed to bring in outside food and beverages with the exception of alcohol. No coolers will be allowed in the main seating bowl, but will be allowed in the Hog Pen.
Wichita State, coached by former Arkansas assistant Todd Butler, will be visiting Fayetteville the day before the Razorback football team takes on Alabama. The Shockers, a 35-win team from a year ago, faces Arkansas for only the second time since 2007. The Razorbacks and Shockers faced each other one time during the 2013 NCAA Manhattan (Kansas) Regional and were regular opponents almost every year during the 1990s and early 2000s.
All fall practices through the month of September and October at Baum Stadium are open to the public. The dates for the annual Fall World Series will be announced at a later time.
