When: Nov. 23,

Where: Razorback Stadium (Fayetteville, Ark.)

Why it's No. 7: The day after Thanksgiving, 2:30 p.m. on CBS. It's can't-miss TV. Of course, a lot depends on how the seasons go for these two teams but it's very possible that this game could be for the SEC West.

Series history: LSU and Arkansas started playing in 1901 and the Tigers have a 35-20 lead in the series. Arkansas had won three of four before the Tigers rallied last year to win 41-17. The game is known as the “Battle for the Golden Boot.”

Rivalry on a scale of 1-100: 85. Once Arkansas joined the SEC in 1992, this rivalry has cranked up. And it hasn't hurt that the two teams have played some memorable games such as the three-OT thriller in 2007.
