FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. -- Arkansas and Texas have agreed to a four-year, home-and-home series in basketball, Razorbacks athletic director Frank Broyles announced Friday.

The series begins next year at Texas on Dec. 19.

The teams have not played since 1991, when Arkansas beat the Longhorns 120-89 to win the Southwest Conference tournament title.

"We are very pleased to be playing Texas again in basketball," Broyles said. "It was a great rivalry in the past and will continue to be one. It will allow fans to relive a lot of history between the two programs."
