FAYETTEVILLE – Arkansas’ gymnastics team, ranked No. 2 in the nation, is home for a pair of meets this weekend and several promotions are scheduled.
The Razorbacks entertain No. 13 Auburn on Friday at 7 p.m. in Barnhill Arena while No. 5 Oklahoma is in town on Sunday for a 2 p.m. meet.
For Friday’s meet, team photo cards will be passed out to fans and it’s Kids Get in Free Night. Children 12 and under are admitted free with a paying adult.
Sunday’s meet is Arkansas’ Pink Super Bowl Special. Fans are asked to show their support for the Susan G. Komen Foundation by wearing pink, and will be admitted for $2. Fans can purchase the official University of Arkansas Pink shirt at Hog Heaven or Academy Sports and Outdoors in Rogers. The shirt allows admission to not only Sunday’s gymnastics meet, but also the women’s basketball game on Feb. 16 against LSU. Part of the proceeds from the sale of the shirt go directly to Susan G. Komen for the Cure.
For both meets, t-shirts will be thrown into the stands for each 9.80 or better scored by the Razorbacks, there will be a Jason’s Deli UA student drawing for a prize, a Louie’s Lucky seat giveaway and Academy 10 scorecards will be placed throughout Barnhill Arena.
Both meets are being televised for tape-delay broadcasts. The Auburn meet airs on Fox Sports Net, which is Fox Sports Southwest in Arkansas, on Feb. 11 at 8 p.m., and the Oklahoma meet airs on Cox Sports Television on Feb. 12 at 5 p.m.
