The Razorbacks’ first-ever trip to Notre Dame was wiped out last season due to the global pandemic and the Razorbacks’ ensuing all Southeastern Conference schedule. The Hogs were slated to make the trek to South Bend for the first game of a home-and-home series on Sept. 12 before schedules were altered for the 2020 season. Instead, the Razorbacks and Irish will play the first game of the home-and-home series in Fayetteville on Sept. 27, 2025 – the originally scheduled date.
Moving the game at Notre Dame to the 2028 season gives Arkansas two scheduled non-conference games for that season with a home date against Memphis on the books for Sept. 9.
