ArkansasRazorbacks.com: Arkansas Accepts Belk Bowl Invitation
The University of Arkansas has accepted an invitation to play in the 2016 Belk Bowl held at Bank of America Stadium in Charlotte, North Carolina, the school and the SEC announced Sunday afternoon. Arkansas (7-5) will take on ACC Coastal Division champion Virginia Tech (9-4) on Thursday, Dec. 29 at 4:30 p.m. CT on ESPN.
The Belk Bowl appearance will be the first for both Arkansas and Virginia Tech, and is the first-ever meeting between the two programs. Arkansas has now earned a bowl bid three straight years under head coach Bret Bielema, a feat that has been accomplished six times in program history.
A lot of ‘firsts’ in that list. Direct flights from Fayetteville to Charlotte will fill up quick. Should be a fun matchup with a team that sports a running quarterback…something the Hogs have not been able to stop all season.
