Arkansas wants to play Texas Tech
By Brent Sobleski
Bret Bielema is making changes at Arkansas. Bielema brought a new attitude to the Razorbacks which includes how the program wants to schedule future opponents. An old Southwest Conference rivalry could be renewed next year under Bielema's watch.
The two teams would reportedly like to play the series in 2014 and '15. Both teams currently have open dates within the time frame. Arkansas is awaiting the SEC's decision on conference scheduling before it can earnestly enter conversations with non-conference opponents.
Arkansas wants to become more of a presence in the state of Texas to help recruiting efforts. The Razorbacks already have a future game scheduled at TCU in 2015. Arkansas' ability to play in the Lonestar State will increase exposure in a pipeline state.
