LSU-Arkansas football game moved from Little Rock to Fayetteville
LSU's 2012 regular-season finale against Arkansas has been officially moved from Little Rock to Fayetteville, the schools announced today. Arkansas has played host to LSU in Little Rock every other year since 1994. It will mark just the second time in the 57-game history between the teams that LSU and Arkansas will meet in Fayetteville. The only other time came in 1992, when the Razorbacks won 30-6. Arkansas' on-campus venue, Donald W. Reynolds Razorback Stadium, seats 72,000, compared to 53,955 at War Memorial Stadium in Little Rock. The game currently is scheduled for Saturday, Nov. 24, but it's expected to be moved up a day to Friday, Nov. 23, once the preliminary television selections are made by the league and networks. A decision on the date of the game could come as early as March. The teams have met on the Friday after Thanksgiving 15 times since 1995, with the game televised by CBS. The 2011 game, between No. 1 LSU and No. 3 Arkansas in Tiger Stadium—won by the Tigers 41-17—was the third-most watched regular-season game of the year, according to CBS.
