Hogs’ 2025 SEC opponents unveiled
FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – The Southeastern Conference has announced the scheduling format for league games during the 2025 football season.


All 16 SEC schools will play the same opponents in 2025 they are scheduled to play in 2024 with home and away games flipping. In 2025, Arkansas will host Auburn, Mississippi State, Missouri and Texas A&M while traveling to LSU, Ole Miss, Tennessee and Texas.


The Razorbacks will host Texas A&M in Fayetteville for the first time since 2013, the Aggies’ second season in the SEC. Arkansas will also make a pair of road trips that the Hogs have not made in recent history with a game at Tennessee (first since 2015) and a return to former Southwest Conference rival Texas (first since 2008).


In addition to hosting four SEC games, Donald W. Reynolds Razorback Stadium will host a pair of non-conference games, including a marquee matchup against Notre Dame on September 27. The Razorbacks and Fighting Irish will meet for the first time on the gridiron in the first game of a home-and-home series. The two teams were scheduled to play the first game of the series at Notre Dame in 2020 before the pandemic altered schedules nationwide. The Hogs are slated to make the return trip to South Bend, Ind. in 2028.


The season-opener vs. Missouri State is set for August 30 prior to the first-ever meeting with Arkansas State at War Memorial Stadium on September 7 in Little Rock. Arkansas travels to Memphis on September 20 to take on the Tigers in just the sixth meeting all time between the two schools. The Hogs and Tigers have not met since 1998 when Houston Nutt’s first Arkansas team beat the Tigers 23-9 in Memphis.


The 2024 season kicks off in Little Rock against UAPB on August 31 before a trip to Oklahoma State on September 7. The Razorbacks will host UAB (September 14), Tennessee (October 5), LSU (October 19), Ole Miss (November 2), Texas (November 16) and Louisiana Tech (November 23). Season tickets for the 2024 season are available now by calling the Razorback Ticket Center at 479.575.5151.


The Hogs will resume spring practice on Tuesday, March 26 and hold a pair of open to the public practices inside Razorback Stadium on Saturday, March 30 and Saturday, April 6 before the team’s annual Red-White Game on April 13 at noon.
