FAYETTEVILLE (KFSM) – New Arkansas coach Eric Musselman just took a big step in bridging the past to the present of Razorbacks basketball as the university announced that this year’s Red-White game will be played in Barnhill Arena.
The annual intersquad scrimmage marks the unofficial start of a new college basketball season and will be played on Oct. 5 this fall. Earlier this week, Arkansas announced their full 2019-20 season schedule.

The Razorbacks have not played inside Barnhill Arena since the opening of Bud Walton Arena for the 1993-94 season. Barnhill is currently the home of Arkansas volleyball and gymnastics with a seating capacity of 10,000.
