FAYETTEVILLE — The televised designation and whistleblower time has been set for Arkansas’ men’s basketball game against Oklahoma later this year.
In a post to his Twitter account on Tuesday, fourth-year Razorbacks coach Eric Musselman tweeted a graphic indicating that the teams’ meeting at the BOK Center in Tulsa on Saturday, Dec. 10 will begin at Noon Central and will air on ESPN2.
This year’s game is the second in what could be a four-game series between the programs. Under the terms of the contract, teams are guaranteed to play at least twice in Tulsa and could choose to play up to two more neutral-site games there.
The series was named Crimson & Cardinal Classic, a reference to the colors of the schools.
The Sooners, who will join the Southeastern Conference no later than the 2025-26 basketball season, handed No. 12 Arkansas an 88-66 loss last December, their first of the 2021-22 season. .
Oklahoma guard Elijah Harkless scored a team-high 21 points. Arkansas guard Davonte Davis led the Razorbacks with a game-high 26 points.
Arkansas leads the all-time series with Oklahoma 16-13. The Razorbacks are 5-1 against the Sooners at neutral sites.
