Season ticket orders are now being accepted for the 2016 season at ArkansasRazorbacks.com and start at $250 in Fayetteville. The 2016 home schedule is arguably the best in program history, featuring four games against teams ranked in the final 2015 Associated Press Top 25 poll, highlighted by Alabama and Florida who squared off in last year’s SEC Championship. Arkansas’ six opponents at Donald W. Reynolds Razorback Stadium combined to go 55-24 last season, while five have at least nine wins and four won bowl games.
Tickets for the Arkansas’ game against Alcorn State in Little Rock at War Memorial Stadium have been set at $45 for sideline seats and $35 for end zone seats.
The home schedule kicks off on Saturday, Sept. 3 when the Razorbacks host Louisiana Tech. The opening weekend will be the university’s Hall of Honor weekend where several former Arkansas student-athletes and coaches will be recognized for their success on the field and for what they’ve given back to the university. The inductees will be honored in a ceremony on Friday, Sept. 2 and also recognized during the game against Louisiana Tech.
Two weeks later, Arkansas will host Texas State on Saturday, Sept. 17, which will also serve as Family Weekend for the university. Family Weekend is a great opportunity to return to campus to visit with your son or daughter, learn more about University of Arkansas programs and services and explore the Northwest Arkansas area before the Razorbacks host Texas State.

Arkansas will make its annual trip to Little Rock to take on Alcorn State on Saturday, Oct. 1, for its second Military Appreciation game and Spirit Day. The Razorbacks return to Fayetteville on Saturday, Oct. 8, to host defending National Champion Alabama during Razorback Foundation Appreciation.
Homecoming will be celebrated on the weekend of Oct. 15, against Ole Miss, as Arkansas follows up the Alabama home game by hosting last year’s Sugar Bowl winner. University of Arkansas graduates are encouraged to return to The Hill to join former classmates and all Razorbacks for a special weekend in Fayetteville. Homecoming week will be filled with fun activities, including the annual Homecoming Parade & Pep Rally on Friday night, Oct. 14. The Razorbacks have taken the last two meeting against the Rebels, including a 30-0 shutout in 2014 at Donald W. Reynolds Razorback Stadium.
The regular season wraps up on Nov. 12, as Arkansas will look to retain The Golden Boot for the third straight year during its Senior Day home finale against LSU. The Razorbacks will honor several seniors before the game, including wide receivers Keon Hatcher, Drew Morgan and Dominique Reed, running back Kody Walker, tight end Jeremy Sprinkle, offensive lineman Dan Skipper, linebacker Brooks Ellis, defensive end Deatrich Wise Jr., along with cornerbacks Jared Collins and DJ Dean.
