The biggest change for next year... the Hogs will play Alabama in October instead of September.

The Hogs will face tough road challenges at Florida, Alabama and LSU in 2013. Going on the road to New Jersey to play Rutgers won't be an easy task either.

Arkansas will start off the season with three home games against non-conference opponents Louisiana Lafayette, Samford and Southern Miss before heading up east to take on the Scarlet Knights.

The first four conference games will be the toughest stretch for the Hogs as they play four straight weeks against teams that should be in the top 20 in Texas A&M, Florida, South Carolina and Alabama. After that four game gauntlet, the Hogs schedule gets a little easier with games against Auburn, Ole Miss, Mississippi State before closing out the season in Baton Rouge.
