FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. - The 50th anniversary celebration for the 1964 Football National Champions will be paired with the home game against Alabama, according to a release made public this afternoon by Razorback Athletics.

As part of the 2014 schedule, the Razorbacks will play six games at Donald W. Reynolds Razorback Stadium in Fayetteville, one game at War Memorial Stadium in Little Rock, and will return to Arlington, Texas for the Southwest Classic matchup against Texas A&M at AT&T Stadium.

"Our 2014 schedule will allow the Razorbacks to play in three different home stadiums, which is a one of a kind experience for our fans and student-athletes," Vice Chancellor and Director of Athletics Jeff Long said. ""With seven home games in the state of Arkansas, Razorback fans will have the opportunity to see key SEC games as well as non-conference matchups featuring first time football opponents NIU and Nicholls State.  We are excited  about some  of  the   traditional  events  that we will  celebrate along  with our  fans  along with the new elements that we are moving  forward with  for  the  upcoming   season.  Our   goal is  to  provide a first  class  sports entertainment experience  for  all  Razorback  fans who support us  in Fayetteville, Little  Rock and Arlington,  as  well  as on  the  road."

The home opener against Nicholls State on Sept.  6, 2014 will  be   the debut  of  a  new  event  entitled  Day  of Champions, where Razorback  Athletics will recognize spring  and  summer youth sports champions from around the state on the field during halftime. This will also be the University of Arkansas Sports Hall of Honor Weekend. The honorees for the Class of 2014 will be voted on and announced this summer.

Parent's Weekend will accompany the second home game of the season as the Razorbacks play host to Northern Illinois on Sept. 21. This will also be Hometown Heroes Day, as Razorback Athletics recognizes the Armed Forces and First Responders with a special ceremony.

The 50th anniversary celebration of the 1964 Football National Championship is scheduled for Oct. 10-12, the weekend Arkansas hosts the Alabama Crimson Tide. Additional details will be announced in the coming weeks as we welcome back Arkansas' first national title winning Hogs back to campus.

Homecoming 2014 will come against UAB on Oct.25 while the Battle for the Golden Boot returns to campus on Nov. 15.  LSU game day will also be the culmination of Razorback Foundation Appreciation Week.

The final special event of the season will come on Nov.  22  in  the SEC home  finale  against Ole  Miss,  when the 2014 Razorback seniors will play their  final  home  game  in  cardinal  and  white at Donald W. Reynolds Razorback Stadium.


Kickoff times will be determined and announced in the fall per television arrangements.
