Arkansas sets spring game for April 26
Arkansas guard Brey Cook lines up for a play during the Razorbacks' Red-White scrimmage on April 20, 2013 in Fayetteville.
FAYETTEVILLE Arkansas will play its annual Red-White Spring Game on April 26 at Razorback Stadium.
The scrimmage will start at 1 p.m. and will be televised by Cox Sports Television. The program hasn't announced a start date yet for spring practice.
The Razorbacks' Red-White game has conflicted with the state's other big spring sporting event, the Arkansas Derby, in recent years. That won't be the case this year as the derby will be held April 12 in Hot Springs.
An announced crowd of 51,088 attended last year's spring game in Fayetteville. This year's game will precede a home conference baseball game the same day between Arkansas and Auburn at 6:05 p.m.
