FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – Razorback football fans can have the chance to be with the University of Arkansas football team on its road trip to Mississippi State on Nov. 22, and support the Razorback mascot, Tusk, by bidding on the Road Trip for Tusk.

All proceeds from this special auction go to the Tusk Fund, established to provide continuing support for the University of Arkansas’ live mascot program.

The auction runs until 7 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 15, at ArkansasRazorbacks.com.

In addition to RSP and adidas providing the trip, Arvest Bank will add a $200 Visa gift card for additional spending money.
