Cotton Bowl 2012: Joe Adams Provides Return Spark For Arkansas

While there are several variables to tonight's big non-BCS bowl match between the Kansas State Wildcats and the Arkansas Razorbacks at Cowboys Stadium, one of the x-factors could be Arkansas returner Joe Adams. The walking highlight reel is a threat every time he gets the ball and a bit of space, and Kansas State would be wise to avoid him says George Schroeder of Sports Illustrated.

Schroeder writes, "Arkansas return specialist Joe Adams produced one of the all-time highlights on a 60-yard punt return for a touchdown against Tennessee, which featured too much darting, ducking and direction changing to describe here -- watch the video for the full effect. It was one of three punts Adams took back for TDs this season, averaging 16.2 yards per return. The senior receiver also has 49 catches for 630 yards and three more TDs. If you're looking for a game-changer, watch Adams. If you miss him -- or if Kansas State does -- you can check YouTube later."
