Arkansas-A&M Game Leaves Cowboy Stadium
Arkansas and Texas A&M will move its football series to campus sites for 2012 and 2013 before targeting a return to Cowboys Stadium beginning in the 2014 season, according to a news release from the University of Arkansas.
Texas A&M will host Arkansas at Kyle Field on Sept. 29, 2012 while the Razorbacks will host the Aggies at Donald W. Reynolds Razorback Stadium on Sept., 28, 2013.
The two institutions have played in the Southwest Classic at Cowboys Stadium in each of the last three years. After Texas A&M officially joined the Southeastern Conference, the Dallas Cowboys worked with both institutions to help address scheduling difficulties created for the Aggies with their entry into the SEC.
Discussions between both institutions and the Dallas Cowboys are ongoing and are focused on returning the series to Cowboys Stadium for the 2014 season and beyond, university officials say.
This will mark the first time the series has been played on campus since the final two years of Arkansas’ tenure in the Southwest Conference. Arkansas last played in College Station in 1991 while Texas A&M last played in Fayetteville in 1990.
