Arkansas will play Kansas State in the 76th AT&T Cotton Bowl Classic on Jan. 6, in Dallas, inside Cowboys Stadium.
"Our team looks forward to becoming part of the long-standing tradition the Razorbacks have with the Cotton Bowl,” coach Bobby Petrino said. “I am very proud to be the coach of this team, which has stuck together all season long and kept competing. The mentality our players have demonstrated is what has allowed us to accomplish all we have this year. We’ve enjoyed success in Cowboys Stadium and the hospitality and experience the Cotton Bowl provides gives our team a special opportunity to compete together one more time. I know this game will be highly anticipated by our fans and the support they will give the Razorbacks will once again be tremendous.”
The Razorbacks sure have had some success in Cowboys Stadium. Arkansas is 3-0 all-time in Cowboys Stadium with victories over Texas A&M in the Southwest Classic each of the last three seasons.
Both teams flirted with the BCS late and Kansas State was the college football darling after that 7-0 start.
Arkansas's offense really took off late in the season before facing LSU, but you can bet the seniors want to make up for how the regular season ended.
