Sunday’s MSU game has been designated Hispanic Heritage Day. The first 200 fans will receive an Arkansas soccer water bottle and a face sticker. Beginning at noon in Lot 56, a booth will open where children can have a photo taken with Big Red and other Razorback mascots. Public address announcements will be made throughout the game in both English and Spanish, and Spanish-themed music will be played during the afternoon.
For both Friday and Sunday’s games, the Hogwild Kick for Cash at halftime gives three contestants a chance to win $100 and advance for a chance to win $1,000. The Jason’s Deli Kids Zone will be available prior to the game and at halftime, and there will be an autograph session with the Razorbacks following each contest.
