Cotton Bowl 2011: Kansas State Vs. Arkansas Ranks No. 5 On NFP's Bowl Rankings

Coming right after the four major BCS bowls including the National Championship game between LSU and Alabama, the Cotton Bowl featuring the Kansas State Wildcats against the Arkansas Razorbacks ranks No. 5 out of all of the 35 bowl games coming up this bowl season in college football over at the National Football Post. Every year, Dave Miller ranks the games from “strongest to weakest” and puts out his list and K-State lands in a high enough bowl that some respect will still come their way. Still that doesn’t keep them from being slighted.

Miller writes, “Wildcats quarterback Collin Klein is perhaps the most underrated dual-threat signal-caller in the nation, and he’ll be going up against a Razorbacks defense led by coordinator Willy Robinson, who will not be retained next season. Offensively, quarterback Tyler Wilson has seen the Alabama and LSU defenses, so he’ll be ready for Arthur Brown and Co.”

It will be even more intriguing to see if Bill Snyder’s squad will be out to prove something given that they were ranked No. 7 in the BCS standings and yet failed to land one of the top 8 spots. Perhaps a strong performance in the Cotton Bowl will prove something to voters.
