Knoxville is going to be absolutely rocking this weekend. The Tennessee Volunteers are set to welcome the Arkansas Razorbacks for one of the biggest series of the year in SEC play.

Lindsey Nelson Stadium will be at 100 percent capacity for the event, too.

The University of Tennessee announced that the stadium would return to full capacity this weekend, citing a rise in vaccination numbers and using examples of full capacity stadiums successfully operating elsewhere in the SEC.

Tennessee is now the 4th ranked in the country after a sweep of Missouri, per the USA Today poll. Arkansas remains as the No. 1 team in the country, setting the stage for a huge trio of games this weekend.

The Volunteers also took the lead in the SEC East standings over Vanderbilt.

Tennessee will take on Tennessee Tech with limited attendance on Tuesday. The Vols will return to the field on Friday night against the Razorbacks for the first game at full capacity. Games on Saturday (12 p.m. ET) and Sunday (1 p.m. ET) will follow.

If the atmosphere for the Vanderbilt series is any indication, we’re in for a wild and hostile weekend of SEC baseball.
