FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) — Arkansas says its regular season-ending game against Missouri has been moved up a day, marking the 17th time in 19 seasons the Razorbacks will have played on the day after Thanksgiving.

The two Southeastern Conference schools, playing for the first time as conference foes, will play in Columbia, Missouri, on Friday, Nov. 28 at 1:30 p.m. on CBS.

They had been scheduled to play a day later, which would have been Arkansas' first game on the Saturday following Thanksgiving since a win over LSU in Little Rock in 2010. The Razorbacks had closed out the regular season with LSU since joining the SEC in 1992, but they'll face new cross-division opponent Missouri beginning this season.

Arkansas opens at Auburn on Aug. 30, while the Tigers host South Dakota State.
