Maybe. The city if Little Rock wants to keep their stadium in use. Arkansas holds fewer and fewer home games there, and, with the stadium in Fayetteville much more accessible than it was 30+ years ago (before freeways were completed) and being much more modernized, the Hogs may stop having games in Little Rock altogether.

I've heard it argued that the city may be just trying to use the threat of another team playing home games in Little Rock as a way to leverage Arkansas to play more home games there, but maybe they're just trying to keep their stadium in use. It remains to be seen whether UA-Little Rock has the finances and support to start up a program. They would have direct access to join the Sun Belt for football, per league bylaws, since they are already a full member for all other sports.

Yeah, because long time Arkansas fans are just gonna stop rooting for Arkansas in favor UALR or whoever else may play in Little Rock (UCA? UAPB?).

The local businesses have been hurting with the lack of Arkansas games. It is them who wanted Little Rock to restart their football program.

That wasn't the point. The city has no leverage. Arkansas has a monopoly on fans of big time college football in the state and sorry Arkansas State fans, I respect you but you aren't big time college football, at least not close to what Arkansas is.

Just updated the new schools and removed the old news of who started football before this year.
