— Arkansas will play another day game in Fayetteville.

The Razorbacks' game against Vanderbilt on Oct. 27 will begin at 11 a.m., the SEC office announced Monday. The game will be televised by SEC Network.

It will be the third consecutive on-campus game that will start at 11 a.m. Arkansas lost 65-31 to Alabama in its last home game Oct. 6 and will start its Homecoming game against Tulsa at 11 a.m. Saturday.

All of the Razorbacks' games in Fayetteville this season have been played during daytime hours. The last chance for a night game is Nov. 10 against LSU.

Arkansas has not had a season without a day game in Fayetteville since 1995, when its six-game home schedule included three games on campus and three games in Little Rock.
