STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) -- Oklahoma State and Arkansas have agreed to renew their long dormant football rivalry.

Arkansas will visit the Cowboys on September 7, 2024. Oklahoma State will visit Arkansas for the return game on September 11, 2027. Oklahoma State made the announcement in a news release.

Separated by only about a three-hour drive, Oklahoma State and Arkansas have met 46 times, but not since 1980. Both were members of the Southwest Conference from 1915-24 before Oklahoma State moved to the Missouri Valley Conference. Still, the two schools met as non-conference opponents 38 times in the next 56 years, including yearly from 1962-80.

The Razorbacks own a 30-15-1 all-time advantage over the Cowboys, though 32 of the 46 meetings were at Arkansas. The nine matchups played in Stillwater produced a 4-4-1 record.
