Arkansas, Texas A&M to continue series in Arlington

Arkansas and Texas A&M will resume their football rivalry this year as members of the Southeastern Conference, but their matchups in the future will take place at Cowboys Stadium in Texas.

The two schools, who played interconference games the previous three years at Cowboys Stadium, announced an 11-year agreement to return the series known as the Southwest Classic to the NFL building, starting in 2014.

Texas A&M and Arkansas are back in the same league for the first time since 1991 when they were members of the Southwest Conference. The series will be played at campus sites this season and next year.

Arkansas left for the SEC after the 1991 season and Texas A&M had been a member of the Big 12 -- the league that formed in 1996 with the dissolution of the Southwest and Big 8 -- before joining the SEC this year.

"We are excited to have reached a new agreement to return our series with Texas A&M to Cowboys Stadium," said Arkansas athletic director Jeff Long in a statement. "The addition of Texas A&M into the SEC will only increase the excitement surrounding the Southwest Classic played in the world's most spectacular stadium."

The Razorbacks won each of the three previous Southwest Classics, including a 42-38 comeback win over the Aggies last season.
