I could see this Arkansas-Texas series growing into an annual thing even past the years that have been discussed. I think both programs see the value of the playing the other. It could replace the Oklahoma series on the Arkansas schedule. Those teams used to play each other every year, but ended when OU wouldn’t make up a couple of rainouts in Fayetteville before Arkansas went back to Norman.
I get the impression Van Horn wants to play Texas. Arkansas had a two-year series set up with Texas about six or seven years ago, but it never came to fruition.
It seems that Soggy Dorito refused to cooperate. Now that he’s gone, they’ve worked it out.
