New Mexico State will visit Arkansas on September 30, 2017, Arkansas’ sports information department announced in a Friday release.
The schools have played five times, but last faced off 12 years ago. The Razorbacks have defeated the Aggies in all five prior contests. Former Razorback and Jacksonville Jaguar Matt Jones completed 13-of-16 passes for 195 yards and a score in a 50-point Razorback victory on September 4, 2004.
New Mexico State joins Coastal Carolina and TCU on the Razorbacks’ 2017 slate. The Aggies will take trips to Arizona State and New Mexico in addition to the trek to the Natural State, while hosting UTEP.
