FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. — Arkansas will find out just how far it's come when it faces its first Southeastern Conference road test.

The Razorbacks (12-3, 1-0 SEC) travel to Mississippi on Wednesday, their first game since easily defeating No. 20 Mississippi State at home on Saturday.

Arkansas is 12-0 at home in Bud Walton Arena this season but 0-3 away from home. That includes a loss to Houston in Little Rock, Ark., as well as road losses at Connecticut and Oklahoma.

Julysses Nobles and BJ Young each scored 24 points in the win over the Bulldogs, and the Razorbacks scored 23 points off 18 turnovers. They lead the SEC by forcing 18.2 turnovers per game, while the Rebels (10-5, 0-1) surrender a league-high 16.1 turnovers per game.
