— Arkansas' game against Mississippi State on Nov. 18 will have a large national audience, but the the time and network will not be determined until this weekend.

The Razorbacks' game against the No. 16 Bulldogs will either be shown by CBS at 11 a.m. or on ESPN or ESPN2 at 6 p.m. A game between Texas A&M and Ole Miss also is being considered for those time slots.

CBS, which typically shows only one SEC game each week, has a doubleheader scheduled for that day. The network will air a game between Kentucky and No. 1 Georgia during its primetime afternoon slot.

Arkansas hosted CBS for its Sept. 9 loss to TCU and also is scheduled to play on the network Nov. 24 when Missouri visits for the regular season finale. If CBS picks up the Razorbacks' game against Mississippi State, it would mark the fifth 11 a.m. start time for an Arkansas game this season.

Mississippi State (7-2, 3-2 SEC) will host No. 2 Alabama this week. The Bulldogs have won four straight games since suffering back-to-back losses at Georgia and Auburn in September.
