FAYETTEVILLE (KFSM)–For the first time since 1998, Arkansas and Memphis are set to meet in football.
The Razorbacks and Tigers scheduled a three-game series beginning in 2025 and spanning four seasons.
The opening game is on September 20, 2025 at Memphis, with the final two meetings coming in Fayetteville on September 19, 2026 and September 9, 2028.
“I am excited for our fans throughout Arkansas and extending into Memphis that this series has come to fruition,” Director of Athletics Hunter Yurachek said. “Based on the proximity of the two institutions and their respective fan bases, I believe these games will generate tremendous interest. I want to thank Allie Prescott for his efforts and diligence to finalize the agreement that Tom Bowen and I began discussing a few months ago.”
