Two football games moved for television

A pair of LSU's Southeastern Conference games on its 2001 schedule has been moved to allow for their broadcast to a national television audience. The Tigers will play Arkansas on the Friday, November 23, the day after Thanksgiving, at 1:30 p.m. on CBS. In addition, LSU will host Auburn on Saturday, Sept. 15, in Tiger Stadium with kickoff pushed back to 8 p.m. for telecast on ESPN2. 

As has been the tradition over the last six years, LSU and Arkansas will close out their regular seasons against one another on CBS. The Razorbacks upset the Tigers, 14-3, last year in Little Rock, Ark.

Auburn and LSU met last year in game televised on ESPN, which had aired the last five LSU-Auburn contests. This will be the first time ESPN2 broadcasts the SEC West showdown.
