For only the second time since Arkansas joined the Southeastern Conference, LSU will play in its divisional rival’s on-campus stadium.

LSU announced Wednesday that its Nov. 23 game against Arkansas will be played in Fayetteville, Ark.

The game is set for a 1:30 p.m. kickoff. CBS will televise the game nationally on the Friday after Thanksgiving.

LSU last played in Fayetteville in 1992, Arkansas’ first year in the Southeastern Conference. The Razorbacks won that game 30-6.

Arkansas’ home games against LSU since have been played at War Memorial Stadium in Little Rock, the state’s capital, every year since 1992.  LSU is 8-6 against Arkansas in Little Rock.

The rest of CBS’ schedule will be announced later this summer.
