SALT LAKE CITY – BYU football and the Arkansas Razorbacks agreed to move up the date for their game slated to be played during the 2023 season, according to, part of the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette.

On Thursday, February 17, the publication shared the information discovered through a Freedom of Information Act request.

“The date has been changed for Arkansas’ home football game against BYU in 2023,” Matt Jones of Arkansas Democrat-Gazette wrote. “The Razorbacks and Cougars are now scheduled to play Sept. 16, 2023, at Reynolds Razorback Stadium in Fayetteville. ”

BYU and Arkansas were originally scheduled to play a week late on September 23, 2023.

Since BYU accepted an invitation to the Big 12 Conference in 2021, the Cougars have been in the process of adjusting future schedules. BYU will join the Big 12 for the 2023 football season.

The 2023 matchup will be the second of two meetings between the Cougars and Razorbacks.

BYU and Arkansas have never played each other. The Cougars will host the Razorbacks for the 2022 season on October 15.

Arkansas will host the newly scheduled return trip game a year later.

Last season, Arkansas finished with a 9-4 record. BYU went 10-3 in 2021.
