COLUMBIA, Mo. - Mizzou Football's final 2014 regular season game vs. Arkansas has been moved to Friday, Nov. 28, with a 1:30 p.m. CT nationally televised kickoff on CBS. The visit from the Southeastern Conference foe is the Razorbacks' first trip to Columbia since the 1906 season.

The Friday matchup between Mizzou and Arkansas is the first non-Thanksgiving Saturday game scheduled for the Tigers since the 1954 season, when legendary head coach Don Faurot's team played at Maryland on Thanksgiving (Thursday, Nov. 25, 1954). The last home non-Thanksgiving Saturday game was on Thanksgiving in 1950, when Faurot's group defeated Kansas, 20-6, on Thursday, Nov. 23, 1950.

Most recently, the Tigers defeated Arkansas in impressive fashion in the 2008 Cotton Bowl by a score of 38-7 (Jan. 1, 2008). The win finished off an impressive 2007 season for Mizzou and head coach Gary Pinkel, posting the first 12-win season in school history and reaching No. 1 in the polls.

Mizzou's full 2014 schedule can be found here, with ticket information available here. The season gets underway on Saturday, Aug. 30, vs. South Dakota State at Faurot Field (kickoff TBA).
