    FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. - The Red-White Spring Game will take place on Saturday at 2 p.m. inside of Donald W. Reynolds Razorback Stadium. The spring game is part of a busy weekend for Razorback athletics.

    Admission to the game is free as Arkansas is trying to set a spring game attendance record with 50,000 Razorback fans. Last season, 45,250 fans attended the game, which broke the UA spring game attendance record for the second straight season. If you cannot make it to the Red-White Spring Game, presented by Cox, you can watch it in high definition on CST. The game will also be available on ESPN3.com and will be carried on the Razorback Sports Network throughout the state.

    The football team is one of nine teams representing the University of Arkansas this weekend and one of four teams participating in home events.

    The No. 12 Arkansas baseball team welcomes the Texas A&M Aggies for a weekend series at Baum Stadium. Game one is slated for Friday at 6:35 p.m. and will be televised on CST.
