According to the Los Angeles Times, UCLA and Texas have agreed to play a game at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Tex., in 2014. The schools have yet to confirm the neutral site game, although athletic director Dan Guerrero told boosters earlier this week that the Bruins would indeed be playing a future game at the home of the Dallas Cowboys.
Subsequent to the report from the Times, UT confirmed the game at JerryWorld.
The game will be played Sept. 13 and will be called “The Cowboys Classic”. As noted by FBSchedules.com, the Longhorns were scheduled to play Arkansas on that day and the Bruins have been set to take on Virginia. The Razorbacks announced Thursday that their game with the Longhorns has been moved to 2021.
“Beginning more than a year ago, we have had discussions with the University of Texas regarding re-scheduling the remaining football game in our current contract,” UA athletic director Jeff Long said. “Based on multiple factors, including scheduling changes within the Big 12 Conference and Southeastern Conference, the game was moved to the next available game date for both institutions. We look forward to finishing this two-game series in 2021.”
It’s unclear to which year UCLA-Virginia will be moved, or if the game will be eliminated altogether.
UCLA and Texas have faced each other this year and last, with each team winning on the road.
