Next year's University of Arkansas schedule shows that Tulsa is scheduled to play the Razorbacks in Fayetteville in September 2003.

Tulsa athletic director Judy MacLeod says the paperwork is on her desk. But no contract's been signed.

The contract is a one-game agreement. But MacLeod says the two schools are talking about a multi-game deal that might bring Arkansas to Tulsa.

The Razorbacks and Golden Hurricane have played 69 times. They faced each other 57 times in a 58-year span from 1933 to 1990.

The two teams haven't played since 1993 in part because of Arkansas' reluctance to visit Tulsa.
