The hurricane, which is picking up strength in the Gulf of Mexico, is projected to hit the Texas coast line Saturday morning and move through the Austin area later in the day. Arkansas and Texas officials reached an agreement to move the game shortly before 9 p.m.
Kickoff time and television arrangements for the Sept. 27 game have not been yet determined.
"As we worked closely with the University of Texas to consider the options, the safety and welfare of the student-athletes, coaches and fans was everyone's top priority," Arkansas athletic director Jeff Long said in a statement released by the university. "In considering all of the factors, both institutions felt that postponing the game was the appropriate course of action. We appreciate the cooperation of the University of Texas and the various state and federal authorities in monitoring the situation and working together to make this decision. With this decision, we can now turn our focus to the safety and well-being of the citizens of Texas and others affected by Hurricane Ike."
