Arkansas Razorbacks vs Arkansas State Football Season Opener Annually

This petition had 118 supporters

Rather than playing 2 FCS schools, when only one win counts towards a bowl eligible victory, why doesn't Arkansas schedule Arkansas State annually? To me it's a huge win for both schools, a no brainier.

First of all, the game sells out and at a much higher rate. More money, more Concession sold, higher tickets prices for both schools etc.

Second, the win would actually count towards a bowl game birth. It wouldn't be a wasted (Pre Season like) game.

Third, it would be a much more competitive game and a good warm up game, before playing the difficult SEC conference games.

Finally, our best games most years are the rivalry games, yeah we are look foward to playing LSU. LSU looks forward to playing Bama, Florida Etc.

I promise a LSU fan don't scroll down the schedule and look for Arkansas, unless they live in Arkansas. An in state rivalry game would help both schools significantly at the point.

I'm thinking open with Arkansas State Annually, then play the FCS school in the middle/late part of the season, as a way to rest players, seems like the best strategy.

Can someone explain the downside, I don't see a good one? Would love to hear input on both sides.
