Arkansas isn't playing Louisiana-Monroe in 2013.
But there will be another Sun Belt Conference team trying to upset the Razorbacks.
Arkansas will play Louisiana-Lafayette to kick off the 2013 season, according to the Lafayette (La.) Advertiser. The newspaper said the game will be played on August 31, although it's not yet known whether it will be held in Fayetteville's Razorback Stadium or Little Rock's War Memorial Stadium.
The Razorbacks are coming off a 34-31 overtime loss to Louisiana-Monroe. It was Arkansas' first loss to ULM in 10 games and knocked the Razorbacks from No. 8 to unranked in this week's Associated Press Top 25 poll. ULM also became the first Sun Belt program to knock off a team ranked in the top 10.
Arkansas is 4-0 against Louisiana-Lafayette. The teams last played in 2002, when Arkansas beat the Ragin' Cajuns 24-17 in Fayetteville.
