Three Game Times Set

Arkansas' first three game times of the 2010 season were announced Wednesday.

Arkansas will open its 2010 football season on campus and on pay-per-view.

The Razorbacks' season-opener against Tennessee Tech will kickoff at 6 p.m. on pay-per-view, it was announced Wednesday as part of the Southeastern Conference's TV schedule for the first three weeks of the season.

Arkansas' Sept. 11 game against Louisiana-Monroe in Little Rock will begin at 6 p.m. on Fox Sports Network and the Sept. 18 conference-opener at Georgia will start at 11 a.m. on either ESPN or ESPN2.

It marks the second consecutive year the Razorbacks will have their season-opener televised on pay-per-view. Last season's 48-10 win over Missouri State was also shown to paying customers.

Under the SEC's lucrative TV deal with ESPN only one game per year can be shown as a pay-per-view. All 12 regular season games will be televised, though those networks and times won't be released until the weeks leading up to the individual games.

The first quarter of the league's TV schedule was announced as part of SEC Media Days in Hoover, Ala. Arkansas coach Bobby Petrino, quarterback Ryan Mallett, tight end D.J. Williams and defensive end Jake Bequette are scheduled to take the podium there tomorrow morning.

Arkansas players report for preseason practice on Aug. 4 and drills begin the following day. The Razorbacks' first practice in full pads is scheduled for Aug. 9.
