Arkansas and Arkansas State will not be required to play a football game this upcoming season, as the proposal was disapproved by state lawmakers.
The game was to be played at War Memorial Stadium in Little Rock and all proceeds would benefit charity. Lawmakers said they liked the idea of the game but did not want to start a rivalry. The game would have required almost $300,000 worth of ticket sales to be able to donate to charity.
It is unlikely that the bill will be further pursued. A rivalry between the Razorbacks and Red Wolves is unnecessary and could cause divide within the state.
