FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (UA) - Fans planning to attend the University of Arkansas men's basketball game with No. 8/8 Syracuse, scheduled for Friday, Nov. 30, are being encouraged to wear white to Bud Walton Arena and participate in a "White Out."
Those fans that do not already have tickets for the contest may purchase them beginning on Thursday at 8:30 a.m., as all remaining non-conference single-game tickets go on sale.
To ensure that Bud Walton Arena is packed with white, the University will hand out t-shirts courtesy of Jennie-O Turkey to the first 10,000 fans through the doors. The Razorbacks and Orange are scheduled to tip at 7:30 p.m. in the non-conference clash. During halftime of the game, fans will be treated by the Skyriders, a high-flying trampoline show.
The game between Arkansas and Syracuse is just the second all-time between the two programs. The first meeting came during the 1994-95 season when the Razorbacks outlasted the Orange in overtime of the second round of the NCAA Tournament, 96-94, in Austin, Texas.
