The University of Hawaii and the University of Massachusetts have agreed to play a home-and-home football series in 2016 and '17.
The teams will play Nov. 26, 2016 at Aloha Stadium in Honolulu and Oct. 7, 2017 in Amherst, Mass.
The schools have never met on the football field.
The 2017 game in Amherst will mark the furthest east a UH football team will play a game at more than 5,000 miles. The previous record was 4,955 miles for a 2010 game at Army in West Point, N.Y. The game will also mark only the ninth time UH will play in the Eastern Time Zone.
Last season, the Rainbow Warriors traveled to Navy to play a non-conference game in Annapolis, Md.
