2020 Schedule

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)

SEC series

Home: Alabama (March 20-22), Florida (April 3-5), Texas A&M (April 10-12), Auburn (April 24-26) and Georgia (May 8-10).

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.

Matt, why is our last conference series always on the road? Seems to have been that way for several years now.

It is based on the UA finals schedule and other finals schedules around the SEC. Arkansas always has to be home the ninth weekend and is always on the road the 10th.

Thanks. I wonder if every other school’s end of season schedule is this rigid.

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.

Don’t they also have to schedule around the state HS baseball finals (usually the third weekend in May) played at Baum?

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.

When will complete baseball schedule be released?

It should come out in the next month. I was told they are waiting on some TV information so they can give start times with the dates.

Arkansas will play at LSU on April 17-19.

Alabama comes to Baum on March 20-22.

Arkansas goes to Ole Miss on March 27-29.

Just what I could see at other schools websites so far…

MAR 20-22 vs ALABAMA
MAR 27-29 (at) OLE MISS
APR 11-14 vs TEXAS A&M
APR 17-19 (at) LSU
MAY 08-10 vs GEORGIA

SEC Tournament: May 19-24

Now from a “got my fingers crossed” perspective.

Arkansas host Regional at Baum May 29 - June 01
Arkansas host Super Regional at Baum June 05 - June 08
Arkansas goes to College World Series June 13 - June 23

June 24 OMAHAWGS return to Fayetteville to celebrate winning it all!!

Florida comes to Baum on April 3-5.

Auburn comes to Baum on April 24-26.

My intuition tells me Arkansas will open SEC play at Mississippi State, play at South Carolina the first weekend of May and finish at Tennessee.

I would imagine that Texas A & M would be April 9-11 since Easter is on April 12.

Dates are wrong for A & M April 11-14 would be Sunday through Wednesday!

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.
