Nelson Chenault-USA TODAY Sports

Kickoff Time

1:30 pm CST

TV

Channel: CBS: Carter Blackburn (Play-by-Play), Aaron Taylor (Analyst); Jamie Erdahl (Sidelines)

Livestreaming: CBSSports.com and the CBS Sports Mobile App (no notes of blackout at this time)

Radio

The usual. Chuck Barrett and Keith Jackson will call the game.

Here's the list of affiliates.

On satellite radio, the game will be on Sirius channel 93 and XM channel 208.

If you're at the game in Columbia (and I think A LOT of Hog fans will be) you've got lots of options for local Mizzou radio: 96.7 / 100.5 / 103.1 fm as well as 1580 am

Point Spread

Arkansas (-3.5) O/U (45)

Interestingly the exact same line and over/under as last week but with the Hogs as the favorite. Should note: Arkansas is 9-2 against the spread this year.

Weather

High of 55 and 0% chance of rain.  Should be a perfect day to ruin for the Hogs to ruin in Columbia.

Notes

So you want to create a rivalry huh?

Trophy?  Check - well, a temporary one for now, anyway

Conference Foes? Check

Something important at stake? Check

Corporate Sponsor? Check

Two teams that hate each other?  .....um.... not yet. Kinda.

Our own Adam Ford wrote earlier this week about just how incredibly these two teams matchup on paper, but the bottom line is BA or no BA, Robb Smith's defense which has pitched consecutive shutouts the last two games, is the key to this matchup.  If this defense plays anywhere close to as well as they have the last two weeks, Friday is going to be a long day for Tiger fans (and a great one for Hogs and Dawgs fans).  If we can ruin their Atlanta plans not too long after stealing their basketball coach, this invented rivalry may become quickly on its way to being a real one.

Best thought for last, no matter what happens on Friday, it won't be the last Arkansas Razorbacks football game of this season, and that's pretty incredible given where most of us thought we'd be this time last year.
