      Subject: NEW (unofficial) Arkansas Holiday: "Go Hogs Day" - the Friday after Thanksgiving when Arkansas vs. LSU
      Cody G. Carson (of the Arkansas Movie Makers Organization "AMMO") has proposed that Razorback VS. LSU Game Day (the day after Thanksgiving) become an Arkansas state Holiday called "Go Hogs Day" The idea is that "Go Hogs Day" somewhat mirrors Groundhog Day because it is when the AR Razorbacks come out to look for their shadow - school rival LSU.
      History: Copy/pasted from Wikipedia
      Since joining the Southeastern Conference in 1992, the Razorbacks have developed an intense rivalry with the LSU Tigers. The game is played annually the day after Thanksgiving and is televised on CBS. The winner of the game has taken home the "Golden Boot", which is a 24-karat gold trophy in the shape of the two states, since its creation in 1996.
      Recently, the series has come to represent an important game in the SEC Western Division, with either Arkansas or LSU representing the Western Division in the SEC Championship Game on several occasions. In 2002, the rivalry gained momentum as the game winner would represent the Western Division of the SEC in the SEC Championship Game. The game (called "Miracle on Markham") was won by Arkansas on a last second touchdown pass by Matt Jones. In 2006, the Tigers snapped the SEC West champion Razorbacks' 10-game winning streak when they were beaten by LSU in Little Rock, 26–31. In 2007, Arkansas stunned top-ranked LSU in triple overtime, 50–48, giving them their first win in Baton Rouge since 1993, and their first victory over a top-ranked team since beating Texas in 1982, winning back the Golden Boot trophy (after 4 consecutive seasons in the hands of LSU) in the process. In 2008, the Razorbacks defended the trophy, winning 31-30 on a last minute touchdown drive. LSU currently leads the series 34–20–2.
