Due to weather delays, Arkansas won't play in the SEC Softball Tournament until Thursday.

Arkansas, the No. 9 seed in the tournament, will play No. 8-seed Georgia at 10 a.m., Thursday on SEC Network. The winner of the game is scheduled to play No. 1-seed Alabama later Thursday at 8 p.m.

All games at the tournament are single elimination.

The Razorbacks were scheduled to play the Bulldogs at 5:30 p.m., Wednesday, but weather delays in College Station, Texas, forced the postponement of two of the five games.

Heavy thunderstorms persisted in College Station throughout the day and a possible tornado was reported near the city's Easterwood Airport on Wednesday afternoon. Only one had been completed by the scheduled 6 p.m. restart of Game 2 between South Carolina and Florida, which was delayed nearly five hours.
