Overall, Arkansas will play five of its first eight league games on the road. Home games during the span include Missouri, Georgia (Saturday, Jan. 9) and Auburn (Wednesday, Jan. 20).

After that stretch, the Razorbacks will play its next three SEC games in Bud Walton Arena, starting with Ole Miss on Jan. 27. After stepping out of league play for the SEC/Big 12 Challenge at Oklahoma State (Jan. 30), Arkansas will square off against Mississippi State (Feb. 2) and Texas A&M (Feb. 6) for back-to-back home games.

Arkansas will play three of its next four contests on the road, including games at Kentucky (Feb. 9), at Missouri (Feb. 13) and at Texas A&M (Feb. 20). The lone home game over that time will be Feb. 16 versus Florida.
