Experiencing a socially distant football game from the cheap seats

FAYETTEVILLE — It is hard to believe just how small a crowd of 16,500 can look in an area capable of being filled by more than 70,000 people.

With press box seating limited, the decision was made to watch Arkansas' season opener from the stands. The top row on the west side was the perfect place to observe both Georgia 37, Arkansas 10, and the sun spash off the foothills of the Ozarks on a beautiful fall afternoon.

The walk to the stadium began about 45 minutes prior to kickoff. The lack of foot and vehicle traffic was striking.
