Shortly after the national updated guidelines regarding masks and other covid stuff, Arkansas athletics director Hunter Yurachek wasted little time opening up next weekends final series against Florida.

The Razorbacks’ final regular-season series will be against Florida next weekend and tickets go on sale Friday morning at 9 a.m.
The CDC revised guidelines Thursday and said fully vaccinated people do not have to wear masks outdoors or indoors. The complete vaccination cycle includes all required shots and the two-week waiting period.
Exactly how it’s determined whether someone is fully vaccinated or not isn’t known, yet.
But the guess is probably pretty good there will be a large crowd with the last series of the year being the first one fully open in Fayetteville.
Other schools have either officially or unofficially open for several series for over a month. Masks have been required to get in, but pretty much ignored once fans got in at many schools across the league.
Tennessee will be fully open for the Razorbacks’ visit this weekend, but compared to Baum-Walker Stadium that will seem like a small, intimate, gathering of just over 4,700 fans.
The listed capacity for Baum-Walker is 10,737, but the record attendance is when 13,472 crowded in for a game against Southern California back on March 3, 2018.
