The University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff and the Arkansas Razorbacks are set to meet on the football field for the first time ever in 2021.

The two University of Arkansas system schools will meet in Fayetteville on October 23, 2021 and again on August 31, 2024.

“We’re excited to further expand our connection with the University of Arkansas in another historic competition,” said UAPB Athletic Director Melvin Hines. “This matchup in football creates a significant opportunity to grow the UAPB brand within the state as well as nationally while strengthening our overall University System.”  

The two institutions met in several matchups during the spring of 2019. The Golden Lions and Razorbacks had first-time matchups in women’s and men’s tennis, softball, and baseball in Fayetteville.

“As the flagship institution within our state, scheduling games with our sister institutions is an opportunity for us to enhance interest in college football throughout our state while supporting other schools within the University of Arkansas system,” University of Arkansas Vice Chancellor and Director of Athletics Hunter
