KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- The Kansas City Chiefs will allow Kansas and Arkansas State to play one home game each at Arrowhead Stadium in 2005.

The Chiefs have a contract with Arkansas State, which will play Missouri on Sept. 3. On Thursday, Chiefs general manager Carl Peterson said an agreement had been reached to allow Kansas to host Oklahoma at Arrowhead on Oct. 15.

The move allows more fans to attend the game.

Kansas' Memorial Stadium in Lawrence seats 50,250 while Arrowhead holds 79,451.

The Big 12 championship game on Dec. 4 will be the only major college matchup this season at Arrowhead.

Since 2001, the stadium also has been the site of the annual Fall Classic between Northwest Missouri State and Pittsburg (Kan.) State, which play in NCAA Division II. This year's game is set for Nov. 6.
