Another Southeastern Conference football team is coming to Provo.
BYU and Arkansas of the SEC announced a home-and-home football agreement on Thursday, with the Razorbacks playing at LaVell Edwards Stadium on Oct. 15, 2022, and BYU playing at Razorback Stadium in Fayetteville, Ark., on Sept. 23, 2023.
BYU last hosted an SEC foe on Oct. 14, 2016, when it defeated Mississippi State 28-21 in overtime at LES. The Cougars are scheduled to host the SEC’s Missouri in 2020.
The 2022 game will mark the first meeting between Arkansas and BYU.
“I’ve been on the beautiful campus at the University of Arkansas and seen their state-of-the-art athletic facilities,” BYU director of athletics Tom Holmoe said in a school news release. “It will be a road trip BYU fans will not want to miss. I look forward to the Razorbacks and Cougars battling for the first time when we host Arkansas in Provo in 2022.”
Kickoff times and broadcast plans will be announced at a later date.
BYU’s home schedule in 2022 now includes games against Baylor (Sept. 10), Wyoming (Sept. 24), Utah State (Sept. 30) and East Carolina (Nov. 19) in addition to Arkansas.
In 2023, BYU is schedule to travel to Arkansas (Sept. 23), Houston (Oct. 7) and USC (Nov. 25).
