This year the Farmers Bank & Trust LIVE UNITED BOWL will be played Saturday, December 3, at Razorback Stadium, Texarkana, Arkansas with a noon-Kick-off slated.
"With a team from the Great American Conference (GAC) and a regional Division II opponent, this year’s game should prove to be a great competition says,” Jerry Huckabee, Live United Bowl committee.
Putting together a first-class experience for the two universities and their fans has always been the goal of the Live United Bowl. With the feedback from participating universities over the last nine years, the LIVE UNITED BOWL has become the premier Division II bowl game. “Calls from a number of universities are already coming in to ask if they will be considered to be invited to play in the 2022 bowl game,” says Allen Brown, President of the Live United Bowl. “This is a testament to the reputation we have built for the Live United Bowl.”
