I’m told Arkansas has recently completed its 56-game schedule for the upcoming season and it should be released soon. Here are the opponents that I have been told are on the schedule or that have already been released:
Oklahoma (two games - in Houston on Feb. 28 and in Norman TBA)
Texas (in Houston on Feb. 29)
Baylor (in Houston on March 1)
Missouri State (April 14)
at Michigan State (April 21-22)
Away: Mississippi State (March 13-15), Ole Miss (March 27-29), LSU (April 17-19), South Carolina and Tennessee. I have heard the Tennessee series will be the final weekend of the season, May 14-16, but have not been able to confirm that.
I wouldn’t say it is rigid. Van Horn likes the ability to get the team on the road at the end of the year. They always fly or bus - depending on the distance - from their final regular season site to Hoover. Classes are over and it’s all baseball, which is a relief to the players. From what I can tell it has often been a great time of team building that prepares the team for the postseason run.
LSU in Baton Rouge. Time for some serious Cajun food, zydeco music, cheese grits, andouille sausage and spicy bloody mary breakfasts, as well as some good baseball and rowdy fans. Laissez les bon temps rouler!
I think the AAA has pretty well just figured that Baum will be open that weekend every year. The finals dates could be reshuffled or the games could be moved to another site if there is ever a conflict at Baum, like the softball finals were a couple of years ago when the Razorbacks played in the NCAA Softball Tournament.
Good point. I’m going off what Texas A&M has put on its schedule. I think both teams would have to agree to moving the series up a day, but that is becoming the norm on that weekend for most SEC schools.
