Report: Arkansas and Texas Basketball Will Play in Houston December 17

So this is neat.

Gunnar Rathbun-USA TODAY Sports

Jon Rothstein has been on his game the last couple of days, breaking news of Arkansas and Minnesota's new basketball series beginning next season, and now his sources are telling him Texas is also on the Razorbacks' schedule.

I'm sure no one has a problem with this. Anytime Arkansas and Texas get together it has the ability to get pretty interesting. Plus, with the game scheduled for a week before Christmas, lots of fans will probably be down for a road trip to Houston.

Another positive about this is the game being played in the Toyota Center, home of the Houston Rockets, and not NRG Stadium – or a stadium in general. It'll also be the seventh time the teams will have played in Houston.

Arkansas leads the basketball rivalry (I guess you could call it that) with Texas 86-67. The Razorbacks have lost, though, four of the last six meetings since winning seven straight in the series from 1989-91.

This could be fun. /airhorn
