. Today

No. 5 Florida vs. Arkansas

When/where: 7 p.m.; O'Connell Center, Gainesville

TV/radio: ESPNU; 620-AM

Records: Florida 21-4, 11-2 SEC; Arkansas 17-9, 8-5

Notable: Because of quirks in the SEC schedule with two added teams, this is the first time Arkansas and Florida have met twice in the regular season. Arkansas arrives 18 days after handing the Gators their first defeat in the SEC this season, 80-69. With five games left in the regular season, the Gators hold a one-game lead in the SEC standings. While Florida has struggled away from the O'Connell Center, it is undefeated (12-0) at home. On the flip side, Arkansas is 2-5 on the road in conference play. The Razorbacks have the nation's No. 27 scoring offense (75.5 ppg), while the Gators rank No. 3 in the nation in scoring defense (53.0).
