— Arkansas and Kentucky will play a doubleheader Saturday at Baum Stadium.

The teams will play at 2 p.m., then play again 30 minutes following the conclusion of that game. Both games will be nine innings.

Saturday's second game will replace a scheduled game between the teams at 1 p.m. Sunday, when the forecast calls for an increased chance of thunderstorms during the afternoon.

Tickets purchased for Saturday's game will be honored for both games of the doubleheader. Single-game tickets purchased for Sunday can be exchanged for another regular-season game through the Razorback Ticket Office.

It is the second consecutive weekend that Arkansas has scheduled a doubleheader because of weather. The Razorbacks split a doubleheader with Kent State last Friday.

This weekend's series between Arkansas and Kentucky serves as the SEC opener for both teams. The No. 10 Razorbacks beat the No. 4 Wildcats 9-4 on Friday.
