The Salt Bowl Committee Announced that this year’s Salt Bowl will be played on Friday, August 30th at 7 pm at War Memorial Stadium.
This year’s AAA “Zero Week” is during this time, but the Bryant Hornets and Benton Panthers will play their game at this time.
Shane Broadway, Salt Bowl Committee Spokesperson spoke on the game date saying “According to Arkansas Activities Association policy they have to adjust their calendar every six years so that Thanksgiving Week is always the 21st week of their calendar. So this year that puts Zero Week starting on Sunday August 25th. In order to not conflict with first Saturday of college football we have decided to move back to the Friday night of Labor Day weekend for this year and will evaluate future dates going forward.”
