No surprise here. It will be Arkansas’ last Black Friday game on CBS for the foreseeable future. It will be interesting to see if ABC pursues this moving forward.
A 3 p.m. start is a little later than our typical Black Friday kickoff. I would guess CBS is airing a doubleheader possibly?
The NFL will also have a game on Black Friday this year starting at 3 p.m. (ET) on Prime Video.
That’s my guess. Boise State played Utah State on CBS before the Arkansas-Missouri game last year.
The Arkansas game used to kick off at 1:30 p.m. on the day after Thanksgiving. It has been moved to 2:30 p.m. the last couple of years, and now 3 p.m.
Isn’t 3 PM kind of a prime time slot more so than 1:30?
I much prefer 3pm over 1:30. Folks will be awake from their post turkey dinner naps by then.
