The Bud should be rocking Saturday when the Hogs take on Minnesota

The Arkansas men’s basketball team welcomes just its sixth ranked non-conference opponent to Bud Walton Arena on Saturday and less than 1,000 tickets remained on sale on Friday as the Razorbacks are set to take on No. 14 Minnesota.

In one of the most anticipated non-conference home games of the Mike Anderson era, more than 18,000 fans are expected to roll into The Basketball Palace of Mid-America Saturday evening for the 5:45 p.m. tip-off on SEC Network.

New Arkansas head football coach Chad Morris will be in attendance at Saturday’s game and will address fans at a timeout during the first half.

Arkansas (6-2) enters the weekend with the No. 14 RPI in the nation and the ninth-toughest strength of schedule in the country.

The Razorbacks are 34-23 all-time against AP top 25 teams in Bud Walton Arena, including 18-9 against top 15 teams.
