My BIL and his wife went to the game in Fayetteville last year. Because both sets of their parents live in BR, they usually had two Thanksgivings. Last year, though, they only did one and then had to fly to Fayetteville, leaving around 4pm. This meant that we saw them for about 10 minutes before they had to head for the airport. Kind of messed up the whole Thanksgiving vibe.
Having the game at 7pm in Aggieland would mean that they have to leave by at least early Thanksgiving Day, and thus would miss all the festivities on both sides of their families.
So, yes, that change of day makes some difference in the travel plans.

Living in Houston I could hardly ever make that trip. Now that its in Texas we can so I am excited about it. Having two games nearby is nice next year. But I still think the Wisconsin game should have either been in the superdome or a home and home. I am really excited about Lambeau, but I would have been more excited about the game in tiger stadium and in Madison as a tradeoff... As for Arkansas Little Rock sucked. I think being able to go to fayetteville is a much better alternative.
