University of Arkansas to continue playing football games at Little Rock’s War Memorial Stadium with agreement being extended and amended

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – The University of Arkansas and the War Memorial Stadium Commission have approved an amendment to modify their agreement to extend Razorback football games at War Memorial Stadium through 2018 while helping accommodate the changing landscape of football scheduling. The previous agreement between the University of Arkansas and the War Memorial Stadium Commission was set to expire at the conclusion of the 2016 season.

As part of the amendment, the University of Arkansas will play one game at War Memorial Stadium in the 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017 and 2018 seasons. The five games will include two Southeastern Conference games and three non-conference games. The first in the five-game series will be on Oct. 18, 2014, when the University of Arkansas hosts the University of Georgia in an SEC game at War Memorial Stadium. The Southeastern Conference has not yet determined a football scheduling formula for the 2016 season and beyond.

“I am appreciative of Chairman Kevin Crass and the members of the War Memorial Stadium Commission for working in partnership with the University of Arkansas to come to an agreement that extends our commitment for two additional years while allowing us to address future scheduling challenges,” Vice Chancellor and Director of Athletics Jeff Long. “The new agreement will put the University of Arkansas in a better position to respond to scheduling challenges. Our partnership enabled us to work together to reach a mutually beneficial arrangement that provides the Commission with the financial resources it had anticipated to pay off the remaining debt for their recent renovation of the stadium. With this amendment, we have addressed those priorities and extended our agreement two years through 2018.”

As part of the amended agreement, the University of Arkansas will pay War Memorial Stadium $400,000 annually in 2014, 2015 and 2016. The amount is designed to help offset projected revenue from games previously scheduled for those seasons as well as to help satisfy debt incurred on the stadium’s recent renovation project. As part of the amended agreement, the University of Arkansas will not pay a rental fee for games in the stadium during the 2017 and 2018 seasons. The agreement amends and extends the most recent contract entered into in 2008 which called for two games to be played at War Memorial Stadium annually through 2016.

“We are pleased that we have come to an agreement that will ensure that the University of Arkansas will continue to play football games at War Memorial Stadium through 2018,” War Memorial Stadium Commission Chairman Kevin Crass said. “War Memorial Stadium and the Razorback football program have a long and rich history. The football program would not have established its statewide following without War Memorial Stadium. Additionally, War Memorial Stadium would not have enjoyed its sustained success without the Razorback football program. This is the essence of a true partnership. Recently, we learned that the University had a need to solve a scheduling problem and we had a desire to extend the contract beyond 2016. As partners, we were able to come to a result that helps both the Razorbacks and War Memorial Stadium. The Commission and I want to express our appreciation to Jeff Long for his openness to this creative solution.”

Arkansas Football Razorgraph: Previews LSU game Friday, November 29; a look back at the Mississippi State game




Here are  the Arkansas football game notes for this week as well as a RazorGraph from Saturday’s game. The Razorbacks play at LSU on Friday at 1:30 p.m. on CBS.

· LSU is the fifth top-15 team Arkansas has played this season, which ties the regular season school record. In 2011 and 2006, UA played six top-15 teams including the bowl game.

· Underclassmen have made 88 starts this season for Arkansas, with true freshmen making 25 starts, redshirt freshmen starting nine times and sophomores making 54 starts.

· Underclassmen have accounted for 93.4 percent of Arkansas’ total rushing yards, 90.8 percent of total offense, 87.0 percent of total passing yards, 98.4 percent of kickoff return yards, 79.7 percent of all-purpose yards, 56.9 percent of receiving yards, 59.3 percent of touchdowns scored and 57.1 percent of forced fumbles.

· For the 18th straight time, Arkansas and LSU will be playing for the Golden Boot, a trophy shaped like the two states combined. The trophy was introduced prior to the 1996 game and, at approximately 175 pounds, is believed to be among the heaviest trophies awarded in a college football rivalry. Head coach Bret Bielema is 10-2 (.833) in regular season rivalry trophy games in his career. Coach Bielema was 7-0 competing against Minnesota for Paul Bunyan’s Axe and 3-2 against Iowa with the Hartland Trophy on the line.

· Arkansas has allowed just 7.0 sacks through the first 11 games, which is the lowest total in the SEC and tied for the 2nd-lowest total in the country. The Razorbacks also lead the SEC and rank 7th in NCAA by allowing one sack every 38.86 pass attempts.

Michigan State, Ohio State to battle for Big Ten Conference Championship at Lucas Oil Stadium December 7

(courtesy Big 10)


Rosemont, Ill. – With victories on Saturday, Michigan State and Ohio State secured berths in the third annual Big Ten Football Championship Game to be played on Saturday, Dec. 7, at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis. The Spartans will make their second title game appearance in three years while the Buckeyes will play in the championship game for the first time. The winner of the 2013 Big Ten Football Championship Game will earn the Amos Alonzo Stagg Championship Trophy and a chance to play in one of two historic games in Pasadena, Calif. – the 100th Rose Bowl Game on Jan. 1 or the Bowl Championship Series National Championship Game on Jan. 6.

Michigan State collected a road victory at Northwestern today to earn the outright Legends Division title, the program’s second outright division crown in three seasons after finishing first in 2011. The Spartans improved to 7-0 in the Big Ten and 10-1 overall and host Minnesota in their regular season finale on Nov. 30.
Ohio State defeated Indiana today to secure at least a share of a second straight Leaders Division title. The Buckeyes set a school record with their 23rd straight victory, the fifth-longest winning streak in Big Ten history, and improved to 7-0 in conference and 11-0 overall. Wisconsin earned a road win at Minnesota today to improve to 6-1 in the Big Ten and 9-2 overall and still maintains hopes for a share of the division title. But Ohio State clinched a berth in the championship game based on its victory over the Badgers on Sept. 28. Both teams wrap up the regular season on Nov. 30, with Ohio State at Michigan and Wisconsin hosting Penn State.

The Spartans and Buckeyes will meet for the first time since the 2012 Big Ten opener, when Ohio State edged Michigan State, 17-16, in East Lansing, Mich. In a back-and-forth game, Buckeyes quarterback Braxton Miller connected on a 63-yard scoring strike to Devin Smith to take a 17-13 lead in the third quarter. The Spartans added a fourth-quarter field goal, but Ohio State held on for the one-point victory in Urban Meyer’s first Big Ten game as a head coach.


Ticket blocks for the 2013 Big Ten Football Championship Game are being held for Michigan State and Ohio State and will be sold through university ticket offices. Tickets can also be purchased through Ticketmaster at or by calling (800) 745-3000. Every Big Ten Football Championship Game ticket will allow complimentary admission to the Big Ten Fan Fest presented by Dr Pepper, to be held at the Indiana Convention Center on Friday and Saturday, Dec. 6-7.
