Gameday Preps For Hog Fans

Gameday is this weekend, and crews are putting the finishing touches on Razorback Stadium, but the athletic department also wants fans to do some prep work of their own.
Fayetteville, AR - Gameday is this weekend, and crews are putting the finishing touches on Razorback Stadium, but the athletic department also wants fans to do some prep work of their own.

"There's nothing like a full stadium when the Arkansas Razorbacks are calling the hogs," says Chris Pohl, Associate Athletic Director for Event Management. "We want people to bring their energy and enthusiasm."

But there are a few things you can't bring.

"Security and safety is a very big concern for us," Pohl says.

Bags are off limits, unless they are required for medical reasons or child care.

"We do allow purses as long as they fit into the dimensions of 14x10x10," Pohl says. "More bags makes it more difficult to clear the stadium... and I think we're all familiar with what can happen with a bag when it's filled with the wrong things."

Umbrellas are also banned, but at this weekend's game that shouldn't be an issue.

"I think we can expect a hot humid day," Pohl says.

She encourages fans to bring clear, empty water bottles.

"If they want to fill up at water fountains, they're welcome to," she says. "Hydrate often and early."

Pohl says knowing, and following the rules is the best way to have fun Saturday.

"We want to make it easy for folks, so when they show up at the gates it's a pleasant, great experience," she says.

Fans should also arrive early, because construction projects on campus will cause traffic delays.
