This weekend looks to be an eventful one for football teams of local interest.
The ASU football program will get a lot of national exposure in the coming days, when the Red Wolves next two games will be televised by ESPN2.
ASU travels to Iowa City on Saturday to take on the 13th-ranked Iowa Hawkeyes. Iowa is coming off a big win over then fifth-ranked Penn State last week, and may be looking past the Red Wolves. The contest will be ESPN2’s 11 a.m. game.
ASU’s following game will be at Louisiana-Monroe on Tuesday, Oct. 13.
The Arkansas Razorbacks will be rekindling an old rivalry, when they face Texas A&M in Arlington, Texas, Saturday evening.
The Hogs and Aggies were both members of the old Southwest Conference until Arkansas bolted for the Southeastern Conference following the 1991 season. The SWC folded soon after and A&M, along with Texas, Baylor and Texas Tech joined the Big 8 (which became the present-day Big 12). Remaining SWC members SMU, Rice and Houston all landed in various other conferences.
On the high school front, Walnut Ridge will host Salem for their football homecoming game on Friday night. Homecoming festivities will begin a 6:30 p.m., with kickoff set for 7.
The Walnut Ridge junior high football team will look to stay undefeated when they host Marked Tree on Thursday.
The Hoxie Mustangs will look to avenge last season’s only regular-season loss, when they travel to Wilson to take on the Rivercrest Colts. Both teams won their conference openers on the road last week. Hoxie won at Manila, and Rivercrest picked up a big win at Harrisburg. Game time is 7:30 p.m.
The junior Mustangs will look to pick up their second conference win at Corning on Thursday. Kickoff is scheduled for 7 p.m.
