Many regions of the US have been hit by severe winter weather lately. With the Liberty Bowl between Arkansas and Kansas slated to kickoff on Dec. 28 from Memphis, a statement has been made about the likelihood of the contest being played.

The bowl organizer tweeted on Dec. 26 that the Liberty Bowl is still expected to be played despite the recent barrage of frigid weather.

“There have been significant weather challenges throughout the country, including here in Memphis. We can assure you the AutoZone Liberty Bowl between @KU_Football & @RazorbackFB will be played on Wed. Dec. 28 – kickoff at 4:30 p.m. The forecast at game time is temps in the 50s,” The statement read.

Memphis has been dealing with some water problems as a result of the weather, with MLGW asking customers to restrict all non-essential water uses as it attempts to solve issues within the water system that began over the past few days.

Arkansas enters the contest with a 6-6 record after losing 29-27 at Missouri in the regular season finale. This will be the first meeting between the programs since 2 games played in 1905 and 1906, both Kansas victories.

Arkansas-Kansas will be televised on ESPN.
