FAYETTEVILLE - In one more day it will officially be football season in SEC Country.


The Arkansas football team starts fall camp Thursday on the practice fields outside the Fred W. Smith Football Center at 6:30 p.m. There are also practices Friday (time unannounced) and Saturday at 2:25 p.m. Football media day is Sunday.


Coach Bret Bielema will make his season-opening formal remarks right after lunch Thursday at 12:30 before the first practice. Arkansas News Bureau is currently running a series of positional previews detailing what to expect personnel-wise when camp begins and Bielema will likely address some of those questions.


Arkansas went 8-5 last year and beat Kansas State in the Liberty Bowl. Bielema’s team was predicted fifth in the SEC West. They open the season September 3 at Donald W. Reynolds Stadium against Louisiana Tech.
