This is a weird game to cap because you don’t know which team you’re going to get. Both teams got off to amazing starts and then fizzled out halfway. Now they’re limping into the bowl season. The Kansas Jayhawks are probably the more motivated side, considering they’re in their first bowl appearance since 2008. With that said, the Arkansas Razorbacks are the more talented team from top to bottom, and they should be able to control the trenches. This probably won’t be the prettiest bowl game, but it’s one Arkansas should win. I’ll lay the field goal.
