FAYETTEVILLE — One football pregame show and a portion of another will originate from the University of Arkansas campus Saturday morning ahead of the Razorbacks’ game against Texas.
“SEC Nation” will air live on SEC Network from Lot 44, north of Reynolds Razorback Stadium. The show’s set will be located near where ESPN’s “College Gameday” set up during its trip to Fayetteville in 2006.
“Fox Big Noon Kickoff” will also include live hits from contributor Clay Travis in Fayetteville. Travis will be located in The Gardens, south of Bud Walton Arena.
The rest of the Fox pregame show will air live from Columbus, Ohio, ahead of the network’s airing of a game between Ohio State and Oregon.
The SEC Network and Fox pregame shows will air from 9-11 a.m.
“SEC Nation” will be in Fayetteville for the fifth time, but first time since 2018. The two-hour show is hosted by Laura Rutledge and includes analysis from Tim Tebow, Roman Harper, Jordan Rodgers and Paul Finebaum.
Finabaum’s radio show will air live from Fayetteville on Friday beginning at 3 p.m. on SEC Network. The network’s “Marty & McGee” will be live from the Lot 44 set Saturday beginning at 8 a.m.
Fans will be allowed to watch all of the shows on site. Due to set ups for the SEC Network broadcasts, portions of Maple Street and Lot 44 will not be accessible beginning Thursday at 6 a.m.
The Razorbacks and Longhorns are scheduled to play Saturday at 6 p.m. on ESPN.
