The Razorbacks will begin spring practices on March 10, though it has not been announced whether or not they will be open to the public.

Last season, Arkansas' spring game attendance was broken when 45,250 fans attended the game in support of the team following Bobby Petrino's firing. Bret Bielema, who was hired Dec. 4 after leading Wisconsin to three consecutive Rose Bowl appearances, is the program's third head coach in as many years.

The Arkansas baseball team will also play down the road at Baum Stadium on April 20 as the Razorbacks host Texas A&M for the second of a three-game conference series. First pitch is scheduled for 6:05 p.m in the Saturday match-up.
