— Arkansas' opponents and game times have been set for the 2017 Frisco College Baseball Classic.

The Razorbacks are scheduled to play Arizona at 4 p.m. on March 3; Nebraska at 7:30 p.m. on March 4; and Oklahoma State at 3:30 p.m. on March 5. All games will be played at Dr. Pepper Ballpark in Frisco, Texas - the double-A home of the Texas Rangers.

Arizona and Oklahoma State are coming off trips to the College World Series in 2016, and the Wildcats are the defending national runner-up. Arkansas split two games with Oklahoma State earlier this year, but hasn't played Arizona since the 2004 College World Series.

The Razorbacks are scheduled to play Nebraska for the first time in four years. Arkansas coach Dave Van Horn coached the Cornhuskers from 1998-2002 and twice took the team to the College World Series.

Tickets for the games are being sold at the event's website, FriscoClassic.com. Reserved weekend passes are $60 and general admission weekend passes are $25. Day passes are also being sold for $25 and $10.
