Arkansas Razorbacks 2016 Football Schedule Released

We already knew the opponents. Now we know the dates.

The full schedule has been released, both the conference and non-conference games. Here it is:

September 3rd - Louisiana Tech

September 10th - at TCU

September 17th - Texas State

September 24th - Texas A&M (Arlington)

October 1st - Alcorn State (Little Rock)

October 8th - Alabama

October 15th - Ole Miss

October 22nd - at Auburn

October 29th - Bye

November 5th - Florida

November 12th - LSU

November 19th - at Mississippi State

November 26th - at Missouri (could be moved to Friday the 25th at some point next year)

A couple of quick notes: since the Hogs close with two road games, that means the meat of the schedule is largely home games. From Week 3 through Week 11, Arkansas only plays one true road game. They will have to travel to Arlington and Little Rock in September, however.

Speaking of which, apparently Arkansas was not interested or able in buying out the contract with War Memorial this year as evidenced by the announcement that they'll play Alcorn State in Little Rock next year.

As long as the SEC keeps its current scheduling setup, Arkansas will hit the road to face Auburn, Mississippi State, and Missouri in all even-numbered years, and get four home SEC games - Alabama, LSU, Ole Miss, and rotating SEC East team - in Fayetteville. Next year it will be Florida.
