Kickoff time, TV set for Auburn at Arkansas


Auburn will look to go 2-0 in SEC road games this season next weekend in Fayetteville.

The Tigers travel to play Arkansas in Week 7, with kickoff set for 11 a.m. CST on either ESPN or CBS, announced by the SEC on Monday morning. The conference will decide the TV designation after the conclusion of Week 6 games.

Auburn has won five straight games in the series, with its most recent loss to the Hogs coming in four overtimes in 2015.

Arkansas was unbeaten and ranked No. 8 prior to a 37-0 loss at No. 2 Georgia over the weekend. In Sam Pittman's second season leading the Razorbacks, the program moved into the top 10 of the AP Top 25 for the first time since 2012, and gained national attention with wins over Texas and Texas A&M.

Auburn snapped a 10-game losing streak in Baton Rouge late Saturday night, defeating LSU 24-19 for its first road win in the series since 1999. After being benched the previous week, junior quarterback Bo Nix had 329 yards from scrimmage and two touchdowns, plus a handful of highlight-reel throws when scrambling out of the pocket. Auburn's defense allowed a touchdown on the first drive but then stiffened up, holding LSU to 6 points in the second half, and forcing three punts and an interception in the fourth quarter.

Auburn plays its SEC home opener this Saturday against Georgia. Kickoff is set for 2:30 p.m. CST on CBS.
