FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – Just three more matches are in store for the No. 10 Razorbacks in the regular season, and the Hogs kick off a two-match homestand on Sunday with a ranked match-up against the No. 20 Florida Gators.

It’s the second meeting between the two teams this season, and the first time Florida has been to Fayetteville since 2021. It will be the seventh ranked contest for Arkansas this season, and so far, the Hogs are 3-3 against top 25 opponents.

The Gators are currently 17-7 with a 9-6 SEC record, while the Razorbacks are 23-4 and 13-2 in conference play. The Hogs have had another season playing well at Barnhill Arena, with an 11-2 home court record.

Sunday will be a white-out and will also serve as Senior Day for Arkansas, honoring Taylor Head, Hailey Schneider, Maggie Cartwright, Laura Ehieze and Jill Gillen post-match. Tickets are available online through the Razorback Ticket Center or at the door.

First serve is set for 6 p.m. CT and the match will be broadcast live on SEC Network.
