The Cotton Bowl gets its 1st matchup of Top 10 tms S/‘94 featuring the 2 of the 3 highest rated tms who were left out of the BCS party. This is the 1st meeting between these programs S/’67 (KSU leads 3-1) and it will be played in front of a sellout crowd as both tms easily sold their allotments and the ticket demand for this gm is #2 of all the bowls trailing just the Nat’l Title gm. This is KSU’s 1st Cotton Bowl matchup S/‘00 and 3rd overall (1-1) while it’s the Hogs 12th appearance (3-7-1) and 1st S/‘07. Snyder is 6-6 in bowls while Petrino is 3-3. They had a common opp in A&M and both rallied from DD deficits to beat the Aggies, KSU 53-50 in 4OT while Ark won 42-38 in this stadium. The Cats went 6-2 vs bowl caliber opp despite being outscored 34-31 and outgained 449-335 as their 6 wins were by a comb 26 pts while the 2 losses were by 48. UA was 5-2 vs bowl foes outscoring 33-29 and outgaining them 409-399. KSU was 4-1 on the road TY while Ark was 3-2 outside of their home state. The Wildcats have numerous wins this ssn pulling upsets at Miami, vs Baylor, vs Missouri, at TT, vs A&M and at Texas. There’s no question that HC Snyder has done one of the best jobs in the country this year but I do think Ark just has too many weapons on off in what should be an entertaining Cotton Bowl.
