Army parachutists to deliver game ball to Arkansas

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) - Auburn and Arkansas players will look to the heavens Saturday for delivery of an important element of their football contest - the game ball.

Arkansas officials say the Army Silver Wings Parachute Team will deliver the game ball before the 11 a.m. kickoff in Razorback Stadium at Fayetteville.

A practice jump is scheduled for 5 p.m. Friday, weather permitting, according to a news release from the Razorback program.
