Arkansas will take on Virginia Tech in the Belk Bowl on Thursday, Dec. 29, and the UA is planning a watch party at Bud Walton Arena that evening.

UA officials this week announced plans to show the game, which begins at 4:30 p.m., on the big screen at the arena. The Hog basketball team will open SEC play versus Florida at 8 p.m. that same night, and the UA is offering entry to the game (upper level) plus the Belk Bowl Watch Party for $15.

Fans that already have tickets to the Arkansas/Florida men’s basketball game may come in to watch the Belk Bowl from their ticketed seats for free. There will be free popcorn, and half-priced concessions from 4 p.m. until the tip off of the basketball game.

If the Belk Bowl is still in progress at basketball tip-off time, the football game will be shown split-screen with no audio along with the basketball game.

Parking for the public is available in lots 44 (corner of Maple and Razorback), 72 and 73 (west of Razorback Road and across from Donald W. Reynolds Razorback Stadium) and the Stadium Drive Parking Deck (off Stadium Road and East of Donald W. Reynolds Razorback Stadium).

Tickets are available for purchase online, or at the Razorback Ticket Center by calling 800-982-4647.
