BATON ROUGE - LSU football fans now know what they'll be doing the day after Thanksgiving for the next two years.

LSU announced today that their football regular-season finale against rival Arkansas, "The Battle for the Boot", will return to a Friday afternoon kickoff for the 2011 and 2012 seasons.

The Tigers will host Arkansas on Nov. 25, 2011, and travel to face the Razorbacks on Nov. 23, 2012.  Both games are scheduled to kick off at 1:30pm CST.

LSU and Arkansas have played against each other on the day after Thanksgiving for 13 straight years before playing on Saturday for the past two seasons.
