Hogs reschedule homecoming to Ole Miss game

FAYETTEVILLE Homecoming at the University of Arkansas has been rescheduled to the Razorbacks' scheduled Oct. 17 game against Ole Miss.
Arkansas was originally scheduled to play its Homecoming game against Tennessee on Oct. 31, but that was before the SEC overhauled teams' schedules to accommodate a mandate of playing only conference games. The Razorbacks are now scheduled to play at Texas A&M on Oct. 31 and Tennessee the following week at home.
According to the UA, this year's homecoming will include "a combination of virtual and hybrid events" throughout October, with an emphasis on the week leading up to the homecoming date.
The Ole Miss game is scheduled to be the second of five this year at Donald W. Reynolds Razorback Stadium. Arkansas is scheduled to open the season at home against No. 4 Georgia on Sept. 26.
Attendance at Arkansas' home football games will be capped at around 17,000 this year due to covid-19 protocols.
