Arkansas will play host to the Coastal Carolina Chanticleers in November 2017, Coastal Carolina athletic director Matt Hogue told Ryan Young of the Myrtle Beach Sun News.
The game is scheduled for Nov. 4, making it the second game on the schedule to have a tentative date, along with The Southwest Classic game against Texas A&M scheduled for Sept. 30, 2017. The Razorbacks are also slated to face TCU in a non-conference game in 2017.
Coastal Carolina will play its final season in the FCS in 2016 and join the Sun Belt Conference of the FBS in 2017. In seven all-time matchups against FBS competition, Coastal Carolina is 0-7 and 0-2 against the SEC, most recently losing the South Carolina, 70-10, in 2013.
The game against Arkansas will net the Chanticleers $1.5 million, which is the most in school history “by far,” according to Hogue.
