Senior Ryan Olenek has hits in 24 of 26 games this season and is 2nd in the SEC in both hits and batting average.

Arkansas (21-4) is coming off an 8-2 win at Missouri State on Tuesday night. Last weekend the Razorbacks took the series from Alabama.

Ole Miss and Arkansas have met 91 times coming into the weekend. The Razorbacks hold a 47-44 edge in the all-time series.

Coach Mike Bianco will call on the arms of right-hander Will Ethridge (Friday), southpaw Doug Nikhazy (Saturday) and Gunnar Hoglund (Sunday). Arkansas will matchup with a trio of right-handed hurlers in Issac Campbell (Friday), Connor Noland (Saturday) and Cody Scroggins (Sunday).

Game times for this series are set for tonight at 8 p.m. on ESPNU, Saturday at 3 p.m. on SEC Network and Sunday at 1:30 p.m. on SEC Network +. Fans can also listen to all the action on the Ole Miss Radio Network.
