FAYETTEVILLE — Arkansas' football team is scheduled to play a Black Friday game on CBS for the 25th time this year. 

The Southeastern Conference announced Thursday the Razorbacks' game against Missouri will be played Friday, Nov. 24 at Reynolds Razorback Stadium. The game is scheduled to kick off at 3 p.m.

It marks the 10th consecutive season CBS has chosen to televise the game, although the 2020 game was ultimately played on a Saturday in December and televised by another network due to a covid-19 scheduling rearrangement. 

Arkansas began playing Black Friday football games on CBS 27 years ago. The Razorbacks played LSU 16 times the day after Thanksgiving between 1996-2013. 

This is the final year of a contract for CBS to televise SEC football games. All games will be shown on ESPN-affiliated networks, including ABC, beginning in 2024.

Missouri defeated Arkansas 29-27 last season in Columbia, Mo. The Tigers have a 7-2 lead in the series since joining the SEC. Both of the Razorbacks' wins have come in Fayetteville, most recently in 2021.
