Arkansas releases 2012 football schedule … sort of
Well, sort of. There are 11 games on the schedule, but one more out-of-conference opponent is to be added for a home game on either Sept. 22 or Oct. 20. That’s not too big of a deal — we’re confident the UA will choose a sacrificial lamb for the missing non-SEC game soon enough. Also, the UA hasn’t yet mentioned which home games will be played in Fayetteville and which ones will be in Little Rock.
It’s well worth mentioning that Arkansas will face Texas A&M in an away game on Sept. 29. Texas A&M and Missouri are set to officially join the Southeastern Conference in July, thus expanding the 12-team league to 14 schools. At any rate, the semi-complete 2012 schedule is as follows:
Sept. 1 – Jacksonville State, Home
Sept. 8 – Louisiana-Monroe, Home
Sept. 15 – Alabama, Home
Sept. 22 – Potential Home/Away Game or Open Date, (TBD)
Sept. 29 – vs. Texas A&M, TBD
Oct. 6 – at Auburn, Auburn, Ala.
Oct. 13 – Kentucky, Home
Oct. 20 – Potential Home/Away Game or Open Date, (TBD)
Oct. 27 – Ole Miss, Home
Nov. 3 – Tulsa, Home
Nov. 10 – at South Carolina, Columbia, S.C.
Nov. 17 – at Mississippi State, Starkville, Miss.
Nov. 24 – LSU, Home
The SEC has released the complete 2012 football schedules for all teams in the conference. You’ll find that here.
And, don’t forget — the Razorbacks face the Kansas State Wildcats on Jan. 6 in Dallas in the Cotton Bowl.
