The Arkansas swimming and diving team (4-4) will wrap up dual meet competition Saturday, as the Razorbacks welcome the Kansas Jayhawks (4-3) to town for Senior Day at 10 a.m. at the Arkansas Natatorium.

The Razorbacks have faced the Jayhawks more than any other school in program history, as the familiar foes will be meeting for the 31st time in the series. Though Kansas holds a slight 16-14 edge, Arkansas has been dominant in recent years, winning eight straight meets against the Jayhawks.

The Razorbacks are coming off of two dual meet victories a week ago. Arkansas defeated Vanderbilt in swimming 193-119, marking the first conference win of the season. The Razorbacks also knocked off Houston 258-169 (199-113 in swimming, 59-56 in the diving), which took place at Clemson. However, Arkansas fell to Clemson in diving, 93-59, as the Tigers did not participate in swimming events.

After the non-conference results last weekend, Arkansas is now 25-1 in its last 26 non-conference meets.

Kansas is coming off a road win against William Jewell College last Thursday, where the Jayhawks broke eight pool records and took the first place spot in all but one event over the Cardinals.
