Arkansas plays host to New Mexico in Little Rock on Saturday, one day before the 10 year anniversary of 9-11. As part of the tribute, fans will clad themselves in red and white throughout the stadium. Fans should wear white if they are seated in odd numbered section while fans in even numbered section will wear red. Arkansas students will get a free Razorback t-shirt that is blue in an effort to make the stadium resemble an American flag.
“We want to invite all Razorback fans to join us for a Red, White and Blue Out for the New Mexico game at War Memorial Stadium,” Vice Chancellor and Director of Athletics Jeff Long said. “Even as we commemorate the 10th anniversary of one of the most tragic days in our nation’s history, we will come together to remember those who were lost. We will also celebrate the heroism of the men and women who serve our country as first responders and continue to protect our freedom as members of the United States Armed Forces.”
I hope ESPNU has a blimp to show shots of the stadium from above. Woo Pig Sooiee.
