Rutgers and Arkansas to play home and home series
Rutgers and Arkansas have agreed to a home-and-home series in
football starting next season.
The schools announced on Friday that the Scarlet Knights of the
Big East Conference will travel to Fayetteville on Sept. 22, while
the Razorbacks of the SEC will visit High Point Solutions Stadium
on Sept. 21, 2013.
Rutgers is 5-11-2 facing SEC competition. The last time the
Scarlet Knights played an SEC team, they posted a 37-34 win at
Vanderbilt in 2004.
All six of Rutgers’ home games against SEC opponents were at
Giants Stadium, with Rutgers going 2-4.
Rutgers’ schedule for next season is still incomplete because it
has not found an opponent to replace West Virginia, which is
joining the Big 12 next season.
