FAYETTEVILLE, AR-- The University of Arkansas is introducing its new 'Razorback Red.'In an effort to clarify the school's official color, the U of A is ditching cardinal red for pantone 201; a darker shade that closely resembles the University of Alabama's colors. According to the school's website, the color change will not affect school uniforms, but will change merchandise worn by the fans. More than 550 companies who make licensed Arkansas products will have to sell off all of their old, brighter red before next season.
