On Friday and Saturday, November 4-5, the Division III Razorback Hockey team (6-10-0) welcomes the Vanderbilt Commodores (4-1-1) to the Jones Center for a pair of crucial conference tilts.  Coming off of a challenging trip to Nebraska, the Razorbacks look to get back to their winning ways against a talented Commodore hockey team.  While in Lincoln last weekend, the Hogs dropped pair of games to the Huskers by 9-3 and 7-1 margins.

As the Razorbacks challenged the Huskers, the Commodores were tangling with the Division I Frozen Tide.  In its biggest win to date, Vanderbilt defeated the Tide by a 3-1 (ENG) margin.  Among other victories, Vanderbilt has defeated Notre Dame, Georgia Tech, and South Carolina.  Vanderbilt will make just its second trip to the Jones Center.  The Commodores last made the drive to Springdale on December 10, 2011, when the Hogs notched a 13-0 win.

More recently, the Hogs and Commodores split their regular season series last season.  On October 10, 2015, the Razorbacks defeated the Commodores by a narrow 2-1 margin before succumbing to Vanderbilt in game two the next day by a 5-0 margin.  The teams met again in the post-season last year when, in the third place game at the SECHC tournament, the Arkansas escaped with a 3-2 win.

The puck drops at 8:00 pm on Friday and 4:00 pm on Saturday.  Friday night is “Pink the Rink” where students with their ID get in free.
