FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) — Arkansas has announced that its Sept. 13 game at Texas Tech will kick off at 2:30 p.m. CT and be televised on ABC, ESPN or ESPN2.

The non-conference game against the Red Raiders will mark the first time the former Southwest Conference rivals have played since 1991, the year before the Razorbacks joined the Southeastern Conference. The two teams will play in Fayetteville in 2015.

Arkansas leads the all-time series against Big 12 Conference member Texas Tech 28-7, including a 15-2 edge in Lubbock.

The Razorbacks open their season at Auburn on Aug. 30 before hosting Nicholls State on Sept. 6.

The Red Raiders host Central Arkansas to open the season before traveling to UTEP.
