Bielema Opens Scrimmage to Fans

Much as he did in the spring, Bret Bielema has decided his team is ready for public viewing and has changed original plans. Saturday's 3:30 p.m. scrimmage is now open to fans.

Arkansas coach Bret Bielema has tweeted that Saturday's 3:50 p.m. scrimmage in Reynolds Razorback Stadium is open to fans and media. Fans should enter through Gate 1. Entrance will be allowed at 3:30 p.m.

The coach had originally announced that practices would be closed through the first week of fall camp and that included Saturday's scrimmage.

But much as he did last spring when he changed plans and allowed public viewing after he was comfortable with the progress of the team, Bielema tweeted Friday morning that he would open the scrimmage Saturday.

The Hogs began fall camp on Monday. The Saturday scrimmage will follow a morning workout, that is closed to the public and media.

The practice is set to begin Saturday at 3:50 p.m. inside Donald W. Reynolds Razorback Stadium. Gate 1 will be the only entry into the stadium and will open at 3:30 p.m. All seating will be in the lower bowl on the west side of the stadium with exception of lower rows near the field due to stadium maintenance. Fans will not be permitted to take photos or video of practice, including with cell phones.

Parking is available in all lots west of Razorback Road, as well as Lot 44 on the north side of the stadium. The Fred W. Smith Football Center is not open to the public at this time.
