The Arkansas Razorbacks begin the 2018 season in a little more than two weeks. The players are almost ready and apparently so is Donald W. Reynolds Razorback Stadium.
The stadium has undergone several upgrades since opening in 1938 and the latest renovations, which began during the 2016-17 offseason, are nearly complete. On Thursday, the Arkansas football Twitter account showed a side-by-side picture comparison of how far the construction has come in one full year.
The tweet didn’t include how much work is left to be done. One obvious item still remaining is to include the Razorbacks logo and the official name “Donald W. Reynolds Razorbacks Stadium” on the back of the new scoreboard facing towards the parking lot. Other than that, it looks complete in the photo.
The Razorbacks will play their first game in the newly upgraded home against Eastern Illinois on Sept. 1 at 4 p.m. ET. During the SEC slate, Arkansas will welcome Alabama, Vanderbilt and LSU to Razorback Stadium.
