Series History
Texas A&M leads the all-time series with Arkansas 36-31, including a 17-13 edge in Fayetteville. The Razorbacks are 2-1 against the Aggies since Texas A&M joined the SEC, and have won four of the last six meetings between the two programs at Baum Stadium.

What You Need to Know
• The Razorbacks have won at least one game in 25 straight SEC series dating back to the 2012 season, currently the second-longest streak in the league behind Vanderbilt at 27.

• Arkansas will cap a stretch this weekend of playing 20 ranked teams in a 29-game span. The Razorbacks are 8-9 this year against ranked teams, including series wins against No. 1 South Carolina and No. 11 Vanderbilt.

• The Razorbacks rank second in the league in ERA at 2.35, sitting only behind South Carolina at 2.09. Arkansas ranks 10th in the country in ERA and 3rd in the nation in hits allowed per nine innings at 6.57.

• Chris Oliver is 4-0 in his last four starts against ranked opponents, defeating No. 1 South Carolina, No. 8 LSU, No. 11 Vanderbilt and No. 10 Ole Miss. He will have a chance to make it 5-for-5 this weekend against No. 20 Texas A&M.

• Joe Serrano leads the team with 17 multi-hit games, while Andrew Benintendi is second with 16 multi-hit performances. Brian Anderson, Tyler Spoon and Eric Fisher are all tied with nine multi-RBI games.

• Arkansas turned four double plays last weekend at Ole Miss, including tying a season-high with three in the final game to bring the season total to an SEC-leading 49 twin killings.

• The Razorbacks have held their opponents to two runs or less in 28 of 50 games this year and won 20 of those contests.

Beeks Skips Weekend Start
With soreness in his shoulder, Jalen Beeks will skip his start this weekend, moving Chris Oliver up to Saturday. Sunday's starter will be announced following Saturday's game.

Complete Success
Trey Killian threw another complete game last week at No. 10 Ole Miss to give him an SEC-leading four on the season. All four complete games have come against squads currently ranked in the top 25, including three of them on the road. He has allowed three earned runs or less in eight of his 10 starts and lowered his ERA to 2.42.

What a Relief
Over the last 14 games, the Arkansas bullpen has allowed just three earned run in 46.2 innings of work for a 0.58 earned run average. The remarkable stretch has seen nine different pitchers take the mound, including six of those on multiple occasions.

Model of Consistency
Brian Anderson continues to be one of the most consistent players in the country and is the only Razorback to start every game this season. He has hit safely in 23 of the last 26 games and in 42 of 50 contests on the year.

Wiser Than Most
Jake Wise has turned into a nightmare for opponent behind the plate with an SEC-leading five pickoffs and 20 runners caught stealing. He threw out two runners in the series opener at Ole Miss and has allowed just 20 stolen bases on the year for a .500 stolen base percentage allowed.

This Date in History
Arkansas is 233-228 all-time in the month of May, including a 10-8 mark on May 9, 7-9 record on May 10 and 10-7 mark on May 11.

Elite Hurlers
The Arkansas pitching staff is putting together one of the most dominant seasons in program history in 2014, amassing a 2.35 earned run average through the first 50 games to rank 10th in the country. The seven shutouts already rank in the program's top 10 for a single season, with the record being set with 13 shutouts in 51 games during the 1977 season. The 2.35 ERA currently ranks second in program history, sitting only behind a 1.89 ERA in 61 games last season.
