Coton Bowl 2012 Predictions: Kansas State Picked To Beat Arkansas By ESPN

The Big 12 has already won six of its seven bowl games so far this bowl season and the cherry on top of an already outstanding year-end dessert would be the Cotton Bowl win over the “third” SEC power Arkansas. The Kansas State Wildcats head to Cowboys Stadium for tonight’s premiere match-up and the Razorbacks are considered the favorite — a role the Wildcats have been used to all season. Yet at least one writer, ESPN’s David Ubben, sees the Wildcats for what they can really do and believes they can do it one more time.

Ubben writes, “I’ll take the upset in this one. I’ve had a bead on the Wildcats all season, and I think Kansas State gets enough stops and the grinding running game frustrates an Arkansas defense that isn’t strong enough to stop it. Since picking the Wildcats to lose by 14 to Baylor all the way back on Oct. 1, I’ve picked every Kansas State game correctly, including correctly picking them to win as an underdog four times. Let’s make it five. College football’s other Honey Badger at LSU gave Arkansas fits. Tonight will make it two.”
