2018 Razorback Football Special Dates Set

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – The University of Arkansas will host numerous special events surrounding the 2018 football schedule, including the debut of a renovated Donald W. Reynolds Razorback Stadium, Family Weekend and the traditional Homecoming Weekend.

Arkansas will open the season against Eastern Illinois on Saturday, Sept. 1 at the renovated and expanded Donald W. Reynolds Razorback Stadium. The Home of the Razorbacks is currently undergoing a $160 million renovation and north end zone addition that will provide all fans with additional gameday amenities, including new north stadium entrances and easier concourse access to areas throughout the stadium. The season opener will also be Military Appreciation Day, where Razorback fans may sponsor a military member by providing them a ticket to a game.

Two weeks later, Arkansas will host North Texas on Saturday, Sept. 15, for the University of Arkansas’ Family Weekend.

Homecoming will be celebrated during the weekend of Saturday, Oct. 20, against Tulsa.
