Because of Thursday night’s production deadlines, stories concerning the Beebe at Greenbrier and Vilonia at Sylvan Hills football games will appear in the "Faulkner County Recap" in Saturday’s print edition.
Both of those high school season-openers were moved up a day at the last minute because of potential weather associated with Tropical Storm Isaac.
Stories were posted Thursday night @thecabin.net.
Faulkner County high school games Friday night include:
Conway at Bryant, 7 p.m.
Dumas at Mayflower, 7 p.m.
Episcopal Collegiate at Conway Christian, 7 p.m.
The University of Central Arkansas Alumni Association and Athletic Department tailgate Saturday will be in the center of The Grove at Ole Miss, which has one of the top tailgate areas in the country.
The UCA tailgate will be near the Farley sidewalk, which begins at the Farley building and runs completely through the Grove crossing the Walk of Champions sidewalk. UCA fans should go to where the two sidewalks intersect, and go north along the Farley sidewalk. They should look for a big white cathedral tent and purple flag/decor.

The tailgate will be set-up by noon Saturday. The Bears will open the season against Ole Miss at 6:06 p.m.
