The schools announced Monday, at the site of the new Dallas
Cowboys' stadium, that they have a "long-term agreement" to play
games at the stadium that will open in 2009. The first game will be
Oct. 3, 2009.
"We're excited about it," said Cowboys owner Jerry Jones, who
was a co-captain on Arkansas' 1964 national championship team.
Among others on hand for Monday's announcement were Razorbacks
coach Bobby Petrino and Texas A&M coach Mike Sherman, both hired by
their respective schools since the end of the 2007 season.
Previously, the Cotton Bowl announced plans to move its game to
the new stadium beginning with its 2010 game.
Arkansas and Texas A&M last played Nov. 16, 1991, before the
Razorbacks left the Southwest Conference for the Southeastern
Conference. The Aggies won that game 13-3, but Arkansas leads the
overall series 38-24-3.
Texas A&M remained in the Southwest Conference until the
formation of the Big 12 in 1996.
