FAYETTEVILLE Arkansas' Sept. 13 football game at Texas Tech will begin at 2:30 p.m. and will be televised by either ABC, ESPN or ESPN2.
The Red Raiders released kickoff times for their first four games Thursday, including a 6 p.m. start time Aug. 30 against Central Arkansas on FSN.
Arkansas now knows four of its start times for the coming season, but likely won't know anymore until September. The Razorbacks have back-to-back 3 p.m. SEC Network games at Auburn and at home against Nicholls State to begin the season. Arkansas ends the year with a 1:30 p.m. game at Missouri on Nov. 28 which will be televised nationally by CBS.
The Razorbacks and Red Raiders will play the first of a two-game series this season. Texas Tech is scheduled to travel to Arkansas in September 2015.
The schools haven't played since the Razorbacks left the Southwest Conference following the 1991 season. Arkansas has won 28 of the 35 games played in the series.
