2012 Cotton Bowl, Kansas State Vs. Arkansas Final Score: Razorbacks Defeat Wildcats 29-16

The Kansas St Wildcats have been counted out in many games this year only to come from behind to win in this magical 2011 season for Kansas State, however tonight was not one of those nights. Kansas State trailed the entire game and did make a comeback to make the game interesting when they scored 16 unanswered ponts stretching from the second quarter to their first possession in the third quarter. Those 16 straight points made the score 19-16 and that is the closest that Kansas State would get to Arkansas State tonight.

Arkansas responded by ratcheting up their defense to shut down the Kansas State offense and scored the final 10 points of the game to win 29-16. The Arkansas defense ended up holding Kansas State's Collin Klein to only 41 yards rushing on a 1.7 yard average pre rush and he was sacked six times. Kansas State was held to 260 yards of offense tonight which was 83 yards below their season average and they turned the ball over two times.

Even though Kansas State lost tonight their 10-win season is their best record since the 2003 season when they finished 11-4 and played in the Fiesta Bowl.
