Arkansas-LSU Set For Friday After Thanksgiving


FAYETTEVILLE — The Arkansas-LSU game will remain on its regular day and time in 2013.

CBS has announced the Razorbacks and Tigers will wrap up the regular season in Tiger Stadium on Friday, Nov. 29.

Kickoff is set for 1:30 p.m.

The annual "Battle for the Boot" between SEC West schools has been played on the Friday after Thanksgiving 15 times in the last 18 years. This season's game also will be the 22nd year the teams will meet in the regular season finale.

LSU beat Arkansas 20-13 to end the 2012 regular season.

CBS also announced it will televise two SEC games on Oct. 19 and Nov. 9. It means Arkansas' games could be under consideration by the network both days.

The Razorbacks play at Alabama on Oct. 19 and at Ole Miss on Nov. 9.
