FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – The University of Arkansas Razorbacks tip-off the 2008-09 basketball season with the Red-White Game on Friday, Oct. 24, at Bud Walton Arena.
For the first time, the Red-White Game is a combined event for the men’s and women’s basketball teams.
As a part of the combined event, the Voices of the Razorback basketball squads team up tonight for a special RazorVision live stream of the event. Mike Nail, voice of men’s basketball, and Kyle Kellams, voice of women’s basketball, will provide play-by-play for their respective teams, then swap roles to serve as color commentators for each other’s teams.
Admission to the scrimmage is one canned food item to be donated to the Salvation Army.
