From a national perspective, the big news to come out of Arkansas's final 2012 schedule was the home-and-home series with Rutgers, the first time an SEC team has ever agreed to visit the Piscataway, N.J. school. But closer to home, the key development was the Razorbacks moving their annual "Battle for the Boot" rivalry game against LSU from its traditional home at Little Rock's War Memorial Stadium to their on-campus stadium on Fayetteville.

In this video, CBS Sports' Tony Barnhart visits the Tim Brando Show to discuss the twin reasons -- more seating, and better recruiting --that "the LSU-Arkansas game will never go back to Little Rock," despite the near-20 years' worth of tradition there between the Hogs and Tigers:

This game should never go back to Little Rock. It's to important and not just about money, but as the man said...It's recruiting!! How do you put kids up in Little Rock and then what...take them to the campus some other time? Arkansas is about to start the run that Petrino has been building for 4 years. And we need everything to work properly from now on to stay there.
 LSU needs to bring that little golden boot with them when they come to Fayettville next year. Just so we can put it in it's new home for years to come:-) And don't worry LSU...Petrino won't run up the score on you the way class-less miles did to us last year.

Man i need some of what your smoking Yell the series record is 35-20 and we beat you guys in 2007,2008 and 2010 which means you have only beaten us 2 times in the last 5, And unfortunaltly for you guys Coach Petrino has a 18 mil buy out on the contract so he will be there awhile. And if you would have payed atention to the video there moving the game for other reasons not because we cant beat you at War Memorial. Razorback Stadium has more seats which = more money and recruiting, I accept last years defeat the better team did win on that day, but next season is a new day.

Won't matter. LSU will still beat the hogs. LSU will have a better team in the fall and what I saw from the beatdown LSU gave the hogs last November the hogs had better improve the defense. Arkansas has a good shot at beating Alabama, but they are years away form beating LSU. This will also depend on how much longer Pertino says as the coach. The best the hogs can hope for is a 2nd place finish in the SEC west.
