2017 Bryant football schedule released; Salt Bowl will be Saturday, Sept. 2

With the Arkansas Razorbacks opening the 2017 football season at War Memorial Stadium in Little Rock on Thursday, Aug. 31, the annual Salt Bowl game between the Bryant Hornets and the Benton Panthers has been moved back a day.

The rivalry game, which annually opens the season for both schools at War Memorial, will be played on Saturday night at 7. The game, which has been played on other days besides Friday has never been on Saturday. It’ll be the final game of the opening week of high school football in the state.

That’s the big news from the announcement of the 2017 Hornets’ football schedule today. Bryant will once again play in a benefit game against Pulaski Academy and the regular-season schedule will be the same as in 2016 with the venues switched.

The Hornets will play at Fayetteville then host Lake Hamilton on Sept. 15 to complete the non-conference slate then open 7A-Central Conference action at Fort Smith Northside on Friday, Sept. 22.
