The 2012 Cotton Bowl features a matchup between two top ten teams that were both spurned by BCS bowls. Arkansas was prevented from being selected by a BCS bowl due to a rule that says no more than two teams from a single conference can be selected. Kansas State was past over for the Sugar Bowl in favor of both Michigan and Virginia Tech.
The game will feature Kansas State's dynamic quarterback Collin Klein who threw for 1,745 yards and also rushed for 1,099. He needs one rushing touchdown to tie Ricky Williams for the Big 12 record.
Arkansas is 3-7-1 in the Cotton Bowl and Kansas State has split its two appearances.
