Chad Morris weighs in on moving Mizzou rivalry game to Little Rock
The Arkansas Razorbacks and Missouri Tigers meet at the end of every regular season in a game that has come to be known as the Battle Line Rivalry.
This year, the Razorbacks get to host, and they’ll host the annual rivalry at War Memorial Stadium in Little Rock instead of Fayetteville.
At SEC Media Days on Wednesday, Arkansas coach Chad Morris said he’s excited to bring the game to Little Rock, but didn’t want to get too ahead of himself thinking of the regular season finale:
“It’ll be a great environment in Little Rock on Thanksgiving weekend,” he said. “… When that opportunity gets here, we’ll be excited about it, but we’ve got a lot of work to do between now and then.”
The Tigers have won the last three games against the Razorbacks, and four of five meetings since joining the SEC.
Arkansas has high hopes for Morris’s second year at the helm of the program, so we’ll see what happens in the Battle Line Rivalry this Thanksgiving weekend.
