Back on Black Friday

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.
