More from WholeHogSports
The teams are scheduled to play Nov. 23, 2024, at Donald W. Reynolds Razorback Stadium in Fayetteville. Louisiana Tech joins Arkansas-Pine Bluff, Oklahoma State and Kent State as nonconference opponents on the Razorbacks’ schedule that year.
Arkansas and Louisiana Tech last played in the 2016 season opener, a 21-20 victory by the Razorbacks that included a go-ahead touchdown on fourth down in the final seven minutes. Arkansas has won all four games it has played against the Bulldogs in a series that dates to 1901.
It has been a relatively close series in modern times. The Razorbacks won 17-13 in 1997 and 38-21 in 1996 - both times in Little Rock.
Louisiana Tech, a member of Conference USA, went 10-3, shared its division title and won a bowl game - a shutout of Miami in the Independence Bowl - for the sixth consecutive season in 2019.
The Bulldogs are coached by Skip Holtz, a 1982 Fayetteville High School graduate who is the son of former Arkansas coach Lou Holtz.
