FAYETTEVILLE — Two more kickoff times for Arkansas football games in 2021 were announced Thursday.

The Razorbacks, entering their second season under coach Sam Pittman, are scheduled to play Rice at 1 p.m. on Sept. 4 and Georgia Southern at 3 p.m. on Sept. 18. Both games will be played in Fayetteville.

The Georgia Southern game will be shown on SEC Network, and the Rice game will air via an Internet stream on ESPN+ and SEC Network+.

The SEC is in its first season of an agreement that allows ESPN+ to stream one home nonconference football game per year for each SEC program. In 2021, the ESPN+ stream can also be accessed through SEC Network+, similar to Arkansas’ baseball games that are not televised by a network.

A subscription will be required to watch the Arkansas-Rice game, either to ESPN+ or to a TV provider that includes ESPN programming. The game can be accessed via the ESPN app or

ESPN previously announced the Razorbacks’ home game against Texas on Sept. 11 will begin at 6 p.m. CBS announced a 2:30 p.m. start time for Arkansas’ Nov. 26 game against Missouri.
