Arkansas Ties School Record for Wins in their Cotton Bowl Victory Over Kansas State
The Arkansas Razorbacks beat the Kansas State Wildcats 29-16 in the AT&T Cotton Bowl at Cowboys Stadium.
The Razorbacks jumped out to a 19-0 lead in the first half with K-State’s first two points coming defensively. After a Jarius Wright 45 yard touchdown reception (pictured) for Arkansas late in the 2nd quarter, Kansas State blocked the extra point and returned it for a defensive two-point conversion, making the score 19-2.
Two drives later after an Arkansas fumble and turnover, quarterback Colin Klein led the Wildcats on a quick 3-play drive that netted a touchdown 47 seconds before halftime. That made the score 19-9 at the half.
Early in the third quarter, a Collin Klein 6-yard touchdown run allowed Kansas State to cut Arkansas’ lead to 3 points, 19-16. However, that would be the last score for the Wildcats in the game. Late in the third quarter Tyler Wilson threw a touchdown pass to Cobi Hamilton that extended the Razorback lead to 26-16. A Razorback 30-yard field goal late in the 4th quarter would be the final points scored in the game.
The win is Arkansas’ fourth Cotton Bowl victory in school history and their 11th win of the season, which ties a school record.
