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.
