By Kevin Kelley -

The Arkansas Razorbacks will host the Florida A&M Rattlers in 2017 and the Missouri State Bears in 2021, according to a report by WholeHogSports.

Arkansas and Florida A&M will meet for the first time ever on the gridiron to open the 2017 season on Sept. 2. The game will be played at D.W.R. Razorback Stadium in Fayetteville or at War Memorial Stadium in Little Rock.

Florida A&M, often referred to as FAMU, is a member of the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference (MEAC) in the Football Championship Subdivision (FCS). Last season, the Rattlers finished 1-10 overall and 1-7 in MEAC play.

The addition of FAMU completes the non-conference schedule for Arkansas in 2017. The Razorbacks are also set to host TCU in Fayetteville on Sept. 9 and will later host New Mexico State on Sept. 30 and Coastal Carolina on Nov. 4.

Arkansas has also added the Missouri State Bears to their 2021 football schedule. The game, also a season-opener, is set for Sept. 4.

Missouri State is a member of the Missouri Valley Conference in the FCS. Last season, the Bears finished 1-10 overall and 0-8 in conference action.

The Bears are the second announced non-conference game for Arkansas for the 2021 season. The Razorbacks are also slated to host the Texas Longhorns on Sept. 11.
