Kansas vs. Arkansas โ€“ How to watch, stream

Arkansas defeats Illinois 73-63 in NCAA Tournament

Arkansas advanced! They will take on a number-one seed for the third consecutive NCAA tournament; Kansas is on the menu this time.

This will only be the 14th time Kansas and Arkansas will play each other despite the proximity between the two schools. The last time they played was in 2005, Arkansas walking away with the victory.

Before 2005, the two met in the 1991 Elite 8, Arkansas playing as the No. 2- seed.

The Hogs are looking to defeat their second No. 1-seed in three seasons. In 2022, Arkansas defeated Gonzaga in the sweet sixteen before losing in the Elite 8. In 2021 they lost to Baylor, who won the National Championship.

In another article, I pointed out how the Razorbacks need a convincing win over Illinois to gain momentum for Kansas. Well, step one is complete; make sure you stay tuned to see the Hogs complete step two: Beat Kansas.
