FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – The No. 12 Arkansas men’s track & field team will get a good preview of the NCAA indoor championships this weekend at home, competing against nationally-ranked powers from around the country Jan. 25-26 at the Razorback Invitational.
The talent-loaded meet will see the Hogs face off against SEC foes No. 2 Florida, No. 8 LSU, Kentucky, and Mississippi State as well as out of conference competitors No. 17 Oregon, Iowa State, Kansas State, Oklahoma State, and Purdue.
“This meet will feature some of the best teams in the nation,” said head coach Chris Bucknam. “If you look at Florida, you look at LSU and Arkansas it doesn’t get much better than that. We just hope our guys will step up and we expect them to step up and make forward progress for this time of year. You’re going to see some great athletes compete this weekend. its still early, its still January but this season really creeps up on you right at the end. After this weekend it’s going to fly by, so I’m sure that coaches will move some of their athletes around here and there from last weekend, but for the most part, you’re going to see a lot of the same athletes competing this weekend that you’ll see at the National Championships in Birmingham.”
The Razorback Invitational will be broadcast LIVE by the SEC network for the fourth consecutive year. The two-day event will kick off on Friday, Jan. 25 at 12:25 p.m. CT with the pentathlon 60-meter hurdles. Friday evening’s prime time events scheduled for 6 p.m. will get underway with the women’s distance medley relay and will be available for streaming on SEC network plus.
