Two additional television appearances could be added with wildcard selections to be decided at the discretion of the SEC Network. The two late-season dates—Nov. 13 and 20—allow for the SEC to select the most compelling matchups for that critical point of the season. On those dates, the Razorbacks host Tennessee and are on the road against Mississippi State, respectively.
Arkansas opens its season Aug. 26-27 at the Illini Classic in Champaign, Illinois. The Razorbacks’ home opener is set for Sept. 16-17 with the Arkansas Invitational. The team’s schedule features seven top-25 RPI opponents and 11 matches against nine teams that advanced to last year’s NCAA Tournament including defending national champion Nebraska.
Season tickets are available for purchase through the Razorback Ticket Center with pricing options beginning at $40. Each ticket package includes a free team knit hat. Arkansas’ 12-match home slate features one non-conference tournament and nine Southeastern Conference matches.
