The Week 4 SEC clash between No. 7 Auburn and Arkansas will be under the lights.
The two will battle it out in Jordan-Hare on Saturday, Sept. 22 at 6 or 6:30 p.m. CST in Auburn’s third contest in a four-game home stand. The action will be broadcast on ESPN, ESPN2 or SEC Network. The league will lock in the network and time after Week 3 games.
Auburn has owned Arkansas under Gus Malzahn’s leadership, going 4-1 in the five meetings thus far, with the sole loss coming in a four-overtime thriller, 54-46 in 2015.
The Tigers have won some lopsided affairs against Arkansas in recent years, with the Tigers outscoring 234-115 in the last five meetings, including 108-23 in the last two.
The Arkansas game always feels closer to home for Malzahn as his coaching roots derive from The Natural State. He was inducted as a member of the Arkansas High School Coaching Hall of Fame in 2013.
Malzahn started his coaching career as a high school coach in Arkansas before joining the Razorbacks in 2005 as an offensive coordinator and wide receivers coach. After departing from Auburn as offensive coordinator, Malzahn took on head coaching responsibilities at Arkansas State for one year before returning to Auburn at his current post as head coach.
Auburn currently holds the edge in the match up all-time against Arkansas with a 15-11-1 record.
