FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (KTHV) -- Arkansas’ first true SEC road game of the season at Auburn on Saturday, October 22, will kick off at 5 p.m. CT on ESPN, the league office announced Monday afternoon. It will be Arkansas’ third straight game on ESPN and fifth this season.
The Razorbacks will take on an Auburn team that will be coming off a bye after winning three straight, including SEC victories over LSU and at Mississippi State. Arkansas has won five of the last nine meetings at Auburn with the last coming in 2012.
Last year, Arkansas and Auburn played a four-overtime thriller at Donald W. Reynolds Razorback Stadium that ended in a 54-46 Razorback win. It was the first time the two teams had ever gone to overtime and the second time they had combined for 100 or more points.
