LSU-Arkansas football game returns to Friday

BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - The Southeastern Conference says LSU's season-finale against Arkansas will be played the day after Thanksgiving for the next two years.

The Tigers and the Hogs will play on Friday, Nov. 25 in Tiger Stadium and then again on Friday, Nov. 23, 2012 in Little Rock. Both games will kickoff at 1:30 p.m. and will be televised nationally by CBS.

LSU and Arkansas met on the day after Thanksgiving for 13 straight years from 1996 to 2008 before playing on Saturday for the past two seasons. The Tigers and Hogs play annually in the Battle for the Boot, which is a 24-karat trophy molded in the shape of Louisiana and Arkansas.
