Hogs-Vols Game 2 Postponed

Arkansas will have to wait until Sunday to try to even the series against Tennessee.

FAYETTEVILLE — The second game between Arkansas and Tennessee has been postponed because of inclement weather.

The teams were scheduled to play at 6:05 p.m. Saturday, but will now play a doubleheader Sunday beginning at 10:05 a.m. Both games will be seven innings.

However, Sunday's forecast does not look promising. There is a 50 percent chance of rain beginning at 11 a.m., according to The Weather Channel.

Tennessee has a curfew of 3:50 p.m. Sunday because it flew commercial. No inning can start after 3:50 p.m.

Arkansas coach Dave Van Horn would not commit to his pitching rotation for the doubleheader. Dominic Taccolini was set to start Saturday with Keaton McKinney scheduled for Sunday.

"We will announce that tomorrow," Van Horn said. "It could be that McKinney goes first, but Taccolini will pitch, too."

Van Horn said the weather window is good for the start of the doubleheader, but not so good later in the day. He said local weather experts said the worst of the rain may arrive by 1 p.m.

"We want to get them in, obviously," he said. "Every game is important, hugely important. They are for us and they are for Tennessee."
