Univ. Of Arkansas Looking To Reduce Number Of Its Little Rock Games
The Univ. of Arkansas said that it would pay War Memorial Stadium $400,000 in “each of the next three years so its football team won’t have to make multiple trips to Little Rock each season.” The school, which currently plays two home games a year in Little Rock, announced a contract extension through ’18 that calls for only one Little Rock game annually. Arkansas AD Jeff Long said the school wants to be flexible as SEC members “consider expanding the league schedule from eight to nine games.” Little Rock is a three-hour drive from the school (AP, 11/26).
