Arkansas' men's basketball opponents for the 2020 conference season were announced by the SEC on Wednesday.
The Razorbacks will play home-only games in Bud Walton Arena against Auburn, Kentucky, South Carolina and Vanderbilt, and road-only matchups against Alabama, Florida, Georgia and Ole Miss.
Arkansas will play home-and-home games against LSU, Mississippi State, Missouri, Tennessee and Texas A&M.
Times, dates and television information for each game will be announced at a later date.
Known nonconference games for next season are at Indiana, at Georgia Tech and at Western Kentucky, plus the Big 12/SEC Challenge. Arkansas' opponent has not been announced for the challenge.
Based on previous Big 12/SEC Challenges, games have been played during the conference schedule on the final Saturday in January.
Matchups at Indiana, Georgia Tech and Western Kentucky will serve as the back end of previously-scheduled home-and-home series. It is believed Arkansas will face the Hoosiers in the early portion of the nonconference season, and the Georgia Tech game will be played Nov. 25.
The date for the Razorbacks’ road game against the Hilltoppers is unknown.
