Attention Razorback fans, event planners, and betrothed. You can now finalize your plans for fall Saturdays for next year.

That’s because the Southeastern Conference this week released the full schedules for the 2020 season, including the slate for the Hogs.

Arkansas will play seven games inside Donald W. Reynolds Razorback Stadium in Fayetteville next season, with four SEC matchups. Notably (but not surprisingly), the Hogs won’t play a game in Little Rock in 2020.

The Hogs will kick off the season against Kent State on Sept. 5. After that, the Hogs will travel to Notre Dame on Sept. 12 for the first ever match up against the Fighting Irish. Notre Dame is scheduled to travel to Fayetteville for a game in 2025.

The Hogs will travel to Mississippi State after that (quite a bit earlier in the schedule than usual) to take on the Bulldogs on Sept. 19, before the annual trip to Dallas to take on Texas A&M in Jerry World on Sept. 26.

The Hogs have another home non-conference matchup versus Charleston Southern on Oct. 3 before two brutal home matchups back to back against Alabama (Oct. 10) and LSU (Oct. 17.).

The Hogs host Tennessee for the first time since 2011 on Halloween night, before traveling to Auburn on Nov. 7.

There are back-to-back home games after that, versus Ole Miss on Nov. 14 and UL-Monroe on Nov. 21, before closing out the year at Missouri on Thanksgiving weekend Nov. 28.

The full schedule is listed below.
