Vol-Arkansas kickoff set

There's good news for Tennessee football fans who like night games.

The Vols, who host Rutgers at 7 p.m. this Saturday, will kick off their Oct. 5 game with Arkansas at 7:45 p.m. The kickoff time was set by ESPN, which has picked up telecast rights and will air the game on a regional basis.

This will be the last meeting between the Vols and Razorbacks until 2006. The SEC is going to a new format next fall which will leave Alabama as UT's only non-divisional foe on an annual basis.

Tennessee leads the all-time series with Arkansas 11-2.

Other SEC games scheduled for television coverage on Oct. 5 include Florida at Mississippi (noon EST) and Georgia at Alabama (3:30 EST). There will be no Jefferson-Pilot telecast that weekend.
