Officials have set the date for this year's Salt Bowl between the Benton and Bryant football teams.

Billed as “Arkansas’ Largest High School Football Game,” the Salt Bowl is held each year in Little Rock’s War Memorial Stadium and pits the Benton Panthers against the Bryant Hornets. This year, the game will kick off at 7 p.m. on Aug. 30, according to a tweet by Shane Broadway, spokesman for the bowl.

Broadway said officials scheduled the game on a Friday so as to avoid a conflict with the first Saturday of college football and “will evaluate future dates going forward.”

Last year, the Salt Bowl ended early after a fight broke out, setting off a panic that drove fans from the stands.

    Will Smokey Bear post a 99 cents sign that guns aren't allowed but fail to enforce that 99 cent demand by actually checking fans entering War Memorial Stadium?

    I see the idiot fake general posting more ignorant comments on this. No real knowledge of the situation OR of how to manage large events, but he can sure critique it, showing his stupidity.
