The Razorbacks are set to kick off their 2022-23 football season this weekend, and if television attention is any indication, the Hogs matchup versus Cincinnati featuring two top-25 teams is definitely one of the more compelling games on the schedule in week one.

Two popular SEC Network shows will be coming to Fayetteville for the Hogs tilt versus the Bearcats this weekend, including morning show SEC Nation and southern lifestyle and college football show Marty & McGee.

ESPN officials announced the two shows would be in town for the game last month.

The set for the shows will be located on Old Main lawn, where Mart & McGee will air beginning at 8 a.m. local time, and SEC nation will begin at 9 a.m.

SEC Nation includes host Laura Rutledge along with Paul Finebaum, Roman Harper, Jordan Rodgers and Tim Tebow, as the hosts breakdown SEC matchups each week live from one campus location throughout the season.

Marty & McGee features personalities Marty Smith and Ryan McGee who also travel to destinations throughout the season “to bring viewers the latest headlines, Hillbilly and otherwise, across the SEC landscape.”

SEC Nation was in town last season for the Hogs’ 40-21 win over Texas.

The 19th ranked Razorbacks will take on the 23rd ranked Bearcats at 2:30 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 3. The game will be televised by ESPN.
