The Arkansas and Missouri football game has been moved to Friday, Nov. 27, the Southeastern Conference announced Thursday. Kickoff is slated for 1:30 p.m. CT from Donald W. Reynolds Razorback Stadium in Fayetteville. CBS will televise the game to a national audience.
The contest will mark the seventh time Arkansas has met Missouri and just the second game between the schools since Missouri joined the SEC in 2012. The two programs have never played each other in Fayetteville.
Arkansas and LSU had played this game on the Friday after Thanksgiving until last year when the Hogs and Tigers filled that spot. There had been speculation that LSU and Texas A&M also coveted that spot, but the SEC picked the UA-Mizzou game for the second straight season.
