The No. 7 ranked Alabama Crimson Tide are coming to Fayetteville for a nationally televised matchup with the Razorbacks on Saturday, and UA officials are planning something special for the TV cameras.
The UA is asking fans to help “Stripe the Stadium” by wearing either red or white colors to the game depending on section seating.
Fans sitting in even numbered sections are asked to wear white, and those sitting in odd-numbered sections are encouraged to wear red to Saturday’s game, resulting in a stripe effect in the stands.
The UA pulled off something similar in War Memorial Stadium a few years ago when athletic director Jeff Long called for a Red White and Blue Out as part of a tribute commemorating the 10-year anniversary of 9/11.
Also this week, SEC Nation will broadcast live from Victory Village North in Fayetteville on Friday afternoon from 5 to 6 p.m. and on Saturday morning from 9 to 11 a.m. The show, which airs on the SEC Network, features interviews and game previews from analysts Joe Tessitore, Tim Tebow, Marcus Spears, Paul Finebaum and Kaylee Hartung.
Kickoff for the Hogs’ matchup with Alabama is set for 5 p.m., and the game will be televised by ESPN. The UA this week announced that the game is totally sold out.
