Second-seeded Missouri Valley Conference regular-season champion Missouri State, 40-17, and the third-seeded Big 12 Tournament champion Oklahoma State Cowboys, only 30-25 but lassoing seven consecutive victories, open the tournament at 2 p.m. Saturday. Also added to the schedule were Arkansas-TCU on September 9 in Fayetteville; Florida-Tennessee on September 16 in Gainesville, Florida; and Florida-Georgia on October 28 in Jacksonville, Florida.
FAYETTEVILLE - Arkansas will play its home-and-home return men's basketball game against the Minnesota Golden Gophers on December 9 at Walton Arena, the Razorbacks announced Tuesday.
The Cowboys beat Arkansas and Missouri State in back-to-back games in early March and finished 1-2 against ORU, winning in Stillwater and dropping two games in Tulsa, including a May 16 setback that is credited as the pivot point in OSU's season. "We're thrilled that we get to play together". I think that's one of the reasons they're playing so well. That game was played as part of the Golden Gopher Classic, which included a round-robin schedule with three other teams.
"Our fans have been so loyal to us", he said.
After one of the most improbable runs in history, the Oklahoma State Cowboys are heading to a regional.
The eight Super Regional winners advance to the College World Series in Omaha.
The Horned Frogs will be featured as the first game of the SEC on CBS broadcast schedule.
"You hope the momentum and experience of the SEC Tournament carries over into this weekend", Van Horn said.
Arkansas and Missouri have played the day after Thanksgiving since their season-ending SEC rivalry began in 2014.
