Hogs hope for easier time in '09 opener

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - Arkansas has a walkthrough scheduled at War Memorial Stadium, the day before the Razorbacks open the season there against Missouri State.

Arkansas faces the Bears on Saturday night. The Hogs are scheduled for a walkthrough Friday around 1:30 p.m.

Missouri State is from the Football Championship Subdivision, but the Razorbacks overlook them at their peril. Last year Arkansas nearly lost to Western Illinois of the FCS in the season opener.
