The 2019 Razorback football Red & White Spring Game, presented by Nissan, will be held Saturday, April 6, 2019, at 3 p.m., inside Donald W. Reynolds Razorback Stadium. The game is slated to start at 3 p.m. This annual game is free and open to the public.
The game allows players a chance to dress-out, play a fun game of scrimmage, and get fans excited for some football.
I am convinced the Red & White Game is set for early spring so that Razorback fans can be revived from their “football withdrawals.”
The Red & White Game will be held in conjunction with this year’s HogFest. A perfect day for fans to “call those hogs,” HogFest allows fans to interact with Coach Chad Morris, players, mascots, the Razorback Marching Band and spirit squads. HogFest will take place in Lot 44, from 12-12:30 p.m. Hog fans will be able to take home the official spring game poster, as well as participate in an autograph session with Coach Chad Morris and the football players.
HogFest is a perfect day for fans to meet the recruits. The Arkansas Razorbacks are ranked 10th in the SEC after adding the 2019 recruits. Little Rock’s own Hudson Henry, a 6’5”, 230-pound tight end from Pulaski Academy will be joining the Hogs this season. Hudson is the younger sibling of former Arkansas and current Los Angeles Chargers tight end Hunter Henry. The Hogs signed more 4-star players for the 2019 season than the last three years combined, picking up a total of 25 signeesin all.
HogFest will feature a kids’ zone area filled with inflatables, vendors, a rock-climbing wall and much more for kids of all ages.
The popular Funk Factory Band will be revving things up with a live concert and beginning at noon. The Funk Factory Band covers everything from Motown Soul to Guitar Solo, Rock & Roll, and Modern Pop.
Fayetteville’s School of Rock members will take the stage for a special performance during the event.
The Razorback Spirit Squads and the Best in Sight and Sound Marching Band will be making an appearance on the main stage at 1 p.m. with a special appearance from head Coach Chad Morris. This is Coach Morris’ second year to be involved with the Red & White Spring game.
Fans are encouraged to bring canned food items to place in the food bins located throughout the HogFest area as well as stadium gates. The canned food drive benefits the UA Full Circle Pantry.
New to the fest this year will be the Classic Car and Truck Show. Razorback fans will be able to showcase their classic vehicles outside the stadium. All car makes and models are welcomed. Pre-registration is required no later than Tuesday, April 2, 2019. There is no cost to register. For more information on how to register and requirements, click here.
The 27th Anniversary Michelle Wilson Walk-A-Thon will start at 8:30 a.m. for early risers. This year’s Walk-A-Thon is “Striding for a Cure to Lupus Disease” which signifies continuing to support efforts towards finding the causes of and cure for lupus.
