It’s official: The Diamond Hogs are hosting a regional.
Arkansas will be hosting for the fifth time in program history and first time since 2007. Arkansas head coach Dave Van Horn made it pretty clear he thought the Razorbacks deserved a spot as one of the 16 teams hosting next weekend. But it was made official today, as Arkansas was one of four Southeastern Conference teams―along with Auburn, Florida and South Carolina―picked.
The rest of the field, including which teams will join the Razorbacks in Fayetteville, will be announced tomorrow. Be sure to check back then for the breakdown of the news and detailed analysis throughout the upcoming week of each and every team heading to Arkansas for the regional.
