Hogs Sell Out Basketball As Final Exhibition Game Set

Arkansas' sold-out season ticket package will now include next Saturday's final exhibition game against North Texas

The opponent for Arkansas' second exhibition game has been set.

The Razorbacks, fresh off an NCAA Elite 8 finish last season, will host fellow NCAA Tournament team North Texas on Saturday, Oct. 30 (Saturday).

Tip-off is set for 4 p.m. on the bye week for the football team before a stretch run of four games to end the season.

North Texas was the Conference USA champion last season and reached the NCAA second round after defeating Purdue in the first round.

Per NCAA regulations, Arkansas can host an NCAA Division I opponent for an exhibition if the game has a charitable component.

A portion of the proceeds from concessions and merchandise sales against the Mean Green will go to benefit COVID relief efforts in the state via the United Way of NWA through the Arkansas 211 program.
