FAYETTEVILLE – Arkansas will learn  the order of its 2020  now entirely all SEC football schedule as it is released at 6 p.m. Monday on the SEC Network’s SEC Now: Football Schedule Release Show.

Because of the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic, the SEC eliminated the four nonconference games on the 14-team league’s 12-games schedules that were to begin the Saturday week of Sept. 7 to a 10-game entirely SEC schedule starting Sept. 26.

The SEC added Georgia and Florida, first and second in the SEC East last season and ranked fourth and eighth in the national Preseason Coaches poll taken before the Big Ten and Pac 12 cancelled their fall sports schedules, to Arkansas’ schedule that already includes Razorbacks SEC West rivals  Alabama, No. 3 in the Coaches Poll, reigning national champion LSU, fifth in the Coaches poll, Auburn, ranked 11th by the Coaches, and 13th-ranked Texas A&M and Mississippi State, and Ole Miss, and SEC East opponents Tennessee and Missouri.

As originally scheduled, the Razorbacks will host Alabama, LSU, Ole Miss and Tennessee plus now hosting Georgia.   They will  visit Auburn, Mississippi State, Texas A&M and Missouri and now visit Florida.

It’s anticipated that Arkansas’ game with Texas A&M, originally set for the Dallas Cowboys’ AT&T Stadium, will move to Texas A&M’s Kyle Field in College Station, and that the Arkansas vs. Missouri game, originally set for the Kansas City Chiefs’ Arrowhead Stadium, will be played at Mizzou’s Faurot Field in Columbia.
