FAYETTEVILLE, Arkansas (KXAN) – The Texas Longhorns and Arkansas Razorbacks meet for the 79th edition of the rivalry between former enemies of the Southwest Conference and future opponents of the Southeast Conference on Saturday night.
Longhorns No. 15 and head coach Steve Sarkisian want to start the season 2-0, but they have to overcome a crowd of Arkansas fans ready to upset Texas at Razorback Stadium. ESPN will broadcast the game with the launch coming just after 6 p.m.
Texas had a business look in their win over Louisiana with outstanding performances from runner Bijan Robinson and quarterback Hudson Card. Arkansas rallied to defeat Rice 38-17 last week. This is the first match between the two teams since Arkansas won the Texas Bowl in 2014.
