Texas Tech, Arkansas schedule series for 2014-15

Texas Tech and Arkansas, who haven’t played in football since their Southwest Conference days, will change that next year when they play a home-and-home series.

The Razorbacks will travel to Lubbock for a Sept. 13, 2014 game and the Red Raiders will travel to Fayetteville in 2015 for a Sept. 19 game.

The schools last played in 1991, with Texas Tech winning that Southwest Conference game 38-21 in Lubbock.

“We are thrilled to begin a home-and-home series with the University of Arkansas,” Texas Tech athletic director Kirby Hocutt said in a statement. “Texas Tech and Arkansas had many memorable games while conference foes in the Southwest Conference, so this should be very exciting for the fans. We feel like we will be placing ourselves in great position as we kick off the College Football Playoff era in 2014, with a non-conference opponent the caliber of Arkansas and a challenging Big 12 schedule.”
