2012 Cotton Bowl, Kansas State Vs. Arkansas Halftime Score: Wildcats Trail 19-9

The Kansas St. Wildcats offense has been held in check and have been held to only 60 yards through the first half. The Arkansas offense has not been that much better as they have only 159 yards from scrimmage, but they did get help from Joe Adams who returned a punt for a touchdown in the first quarter.

The Kansas State defense has been able to keep their team in this game by holding Arkansas to two field goals and they also blocked an extra-point which was returned by Nigel Malone to put Kansas State on the board with two points. The Wildcats actually have scored the last nine points in the half to cut the lead and now trail 19-9.

Kansas State scored their touchdown when Adam Davis sacked and forced Arkansas Razorbacks quarterback Tyler Wilson to fumble which was then recovered by Ryan Mueller at the Arkansas 13-yard line. Kansas State quarterback then ran the ball twice to get to the Arkansas 4-yard line, and then on third down and one Klein completed a 4-yard pass to a wide open Andre McDonald to cut into Arkansas' lead.

The scary moment of the half came when defensive end Meshak Williams was carted off the field when he collided with teammate Emmanuel Lamur. Williams is currently being evaluated in the locker room and as he was being carted off the field he tossed up the Wildcats hand signal to the crowd.
