FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – The Razorbacks’ Nov. 19 road match at Missouri will now be played in front of a national television audience with Tuesday’s announcement of the SEC Network wildcard selections. As previously scheduled, the conference matchup will take place at 3 p.m. CT at the Hearnes Center in Columbia, Mo.
Overall, the match will represent Arkansas’ fifth television appearance this season and its third in a road contest. The late-season date allowed for the league to select the compelling matches that could influence standing as teams look ahead at potential postseason positioning.
Entering the final three weekends of the regular season, the Razorbacks carry a 17-8 overall record with a 7-6 mark in SEC play. Arkansas plays its next three on the road beginning with this weekend’s trip to No. 4 Florida and South Carolina. After the match against Missouri, the Razorbacks return to Barnhill Arena to close out its home schedule with dates against No. 7 Kentucky (Nov. 22) and Auburn (Nov. 25).
In its last outing, Arkansas registered a five-set win over Texas A&M behind a pair of double-double performances by Rachel Rippee and Pilar Victoria. The victory was the program’s first home win against the Aggies and secured the season sweep. Hailey Dirrigl contributed with 15 kills while fellow freshman Elizabeth Pamphile added eight kills and seven blocks. Behind the block, junior libero Okiana Valle had 19 digs and was one of five Razorbacks with at least 10 digs against Texas A&M.
