Arkansas announces three-game football series with Memphis
The Razorbacks are headed to Memphis.
Arkansas officially announced the school has agreed to a three-game football series with Memphis. The first game in the series will take the Razorbacks to Memphis on Sept. 20, 2025, with the Tigers making two return trips to Fayetteville on Sept. 19, 2026, and Sept. 9, 2028.
The two programs have met only five times on the gridiron, with the Tigers holding the edge in the series at 3-2. The previous matchup between the two came in 1998 when the Razorbacks beat the Tigers 23-9 in Memphis,
“I am excited for our fans throughout Arkansas and extending into Memphis that this series has come to fruition,” Vice Chancellor and Director of Athletics Hunter Yurachek said via a school-issued release. “Based on the proximity of the two institutions and their respective fan bases, I believe these games will generate tremendous interest. I want to thank Allie Prescott for his efforts and diligence to finalize the agreement that Tom Bowen and I began discussing a few months ago.”
Following this news, the Razorbacks are halfway finished with completing its 2025 nonconference slate. Arkansas is already set to host Notre Dame during the 2025 season, meaning the school needs to add two more games to complete its nonconference schedule for 2025.
