North Texas vs. Arkansas Postponed

Arkansas' game scheduled for Saturday against North Texas has been postponed because of the terrorists attacks in New York City and Washington, D.C. No makeup game has been set.

The Southeastern Conference announced Thursday afternoon that all football games scheduled for the weekend of Sept. 15 had been postponed indefinitely. Among those games postponed is Arkansas' game in Fayetteville versus North Texas.

The SEC was one of the last league's to postpone its games. On Wednesday, SEC commissioner Roy Kramer announced that the games would be played. However, that decision was met with an outcry around the country and the SEC took much criticism when most other leagues had made the decision to postpone this weekend's games.

The league's athletic directors met again today via telephone conference call and changed their decision to postpone the games.

It is not clear now when these games will be played. A UA official said that the games could be played next weekend, but that it was more likely that they would be added after the regular season or during already existing open dates. Arkansas has two open dates.
