(Tulsa-AP) -- Tulsa and Arkansas are renewing their basketball rivalry.

The two have finalized plans to play during each of the next two seasons with the first game at Tulsa in November.

New Tulsa coach John Phillips says he's excited with the opportunity to play a nationally powerful team.

The game will be the first between the Golden Hurricane and Razorbacks since 1994 when Arkansas beat Tulsa 82-to-63 in Fayetteville, Arkansas. Arkansas is coached by former Tulsa coach Nolan Richardson and the Hogs have won the last six times the two schools have played.
