Report: Arkansas State & Arkansas have talked about possible football matchup

JONESBORO, Ark. (KAIT) - It’s not summertime in the Natural State without the A-State versus Arkansas football debate. 2019 is no different.

A-State has non-conference opponents scheduled as far ahead as 2025 (Iowa State). Arkansas announced a home & home with Utah on Wednesday for the 2026 and 2028 seasons. The Red Wolves have played in-state competition in the past, while the Razorbacks will venture into that water for the first time in 2021 against UAPB.

Meanwhile fans of both programs will continue the never-ending debate.

The last meeting between A-State and Arkansas in any sport was the 2005 Women’s NIT. The last tilt between the two in a men’s sport was the 1987 NIT.
