A&M-Arkansas to kick off at 11 a.m.

Game time for the third Southwest Classic between Texas A&M and Arkansas at Cowboys Stadium has been set for 11 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 1, the Texas A&M Athletics Department announced Sunday. The game will be televised by ESPN.

The early start could help potentially avoid a traffic nightmare in Arlington, Texas, that day where the Texas Rangers could be hosting an ALDS game next door at Rangers Ballpark. The rest of the season will determine if the Rangers will be at home or on the road Saturday. No word yet on a game time. We'll keep you posted.
