Arkansas to continue playing in Little Rock through 2024

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - Arkansas has announced an agreement to continue playing off campus at Little Rock's War Memorial Stadium through 2024.

The six-year agreement between the school and the state's Department of Parks and Tourism calls for the Razorbacks to play Missouri in Little Rock during the 2019, 2021 and 2023 seasons, a game traditionally played on the Friday or Saturday after Thanksgiving.

Also, Arkansas will seek waivers from the Southeastern Conference to play its spring football game at War Memorial Stadium in 2020, 2022 and 2024. The Razorbacks played their spring game there last month because Razorback Stadium in Fayetteville is undergoing a renovation and addition that will be ready for the start of this season.

The agreement calls for improvements and enhancements to War Memorial Stadium, where the Razorbacks have played since 1948. The previous agreement between the school and stadium was set to end following Arkansas' game with Mississippi this season.
