Arkansas' traditional LSU game: Woo Pig Phooey

Posted: Updated:
LITTLE ROCK, Ark. -

When the new SEC schedules came out on Wednesday, Arkansas' long-standing tradition of playing LSU in the regular season finale was gone.  LSU and Arkansas had played the finale every year since Arkansas joined the SEC, but next season they will play on November 15th in either Fayetteville or Little Rock.

LSU will open in Houston against Wisconsin, giving the Tigers a second straight nationally significant game in a neutral site.  LSU will also play on Thanksgiving for the first time since 1973, but instead of playing Arkansas that week, the Tigers will travel to Texas A&M.

Arkansas head coach Bret Bielema, who spoke to the Touchdown Club in Little Rock on Wednesday, said he was not happy that the team's long-standing Thanksgiving week game was changed, but, in his eyes the schedule has some good points, such as Arkansas will have an open week before playing both Alabama and LSU. Arkansas' season finale next year will be at Missouri.
