Razorbacks Beat Wildcats In Fourth Of Five Bowl Games That Actually Matter

Arkansas Beats Kansas State 29-16 In Cotton Bowl – Associated Press

Joe Adams had his fourth punt return for a touchdown this season and No. 7 Arkansas matched a school record with its 11th victory, beating No. 11 Kansas State 29-16 in the Cotton Bowl on Friday night.

All-SEC quarterback Tyler Wilson threw two touchdown passes, including a 9-yarder to Kobi Hamilton with 4 minutes left in the third quarter after Kansas State (10-3) scored 16 consecutive points.

Adams’ 51-yard return early in the second quarter gave the Razorbacks (11-2) a 10-0 lead before they even gained a first down. It was the first punt return for a touchdown in the Cotton Bowl in 51 years.

……………

Arkansas’ only losses were to No. 1 LSU and No. 2 Alabama, the SEC West rivals who will play in the BCS national championship game.

Kansas State also was trying to match its school record with 11 victories, but still finished a surprising season in coach Bill Snyder’s second Wildcats turnaround. K-State won 11 games six times during a seven-year span in Snyder’s first tenure before his three-year retirement, and almost reached that mark again in his third season back.

Wildcats quarterback Collin Klein tied the Big 12 record with his 27th rushing touchdown this season and matched the FBS record for quarterbacks.

After being held to 15 yards on 12 carries in the first half, Klein finished the opening drive of the third quarter with a 6-yard TD run that got the Wildcats to 19-16. That came after Klein had a 15-yard run on the previous play.

That matched the Big 12 record for rushing touchdowns held by 1998 Heisman Trophy winner Ricky Williams of Texas. The only other FBS quarterback with 27 rushing touchdowns in a season was Ricky Dobbs for Navy in 2009.

The only other 11-win seasons for the Razorbacks were by the Lou Holtz-coached team in 1977 and coach Frank Broyles’ only undefeated season at Arkansas in 1964.

A member of that 1964 team that won the Cotton Bowl over Nebraska was Jerry Jones, the Dallas Cowboys owner who attended the game in his $1.2 billion stadium that opened in 2009. He was part of a loud crowd of 80,956.

The Cotton Bowl was the only non-BCS game with both teams in the top 15 of the Bowl Championship Series standings — Arkansas came in sixth, Kansas State eighth. It also is the only bowl featuring the SEC vs. the Big 12, the top two conferences in the BCS computer rankings.

Adams matched the SEC single-season record with his fourth punt return for a TD. He was the only FBS player this season with multiple punt return TDs, along with rushing and receiving scores.

After fielding the ball near midfield, Adams took a few steps back before squirting through a gap past several defenders. He got all the way to the opposite sideline and got his path cleared by one last block from Javontee Herndon downfield.

The Razorbacks didn’t even get a first down until 12½ minutes left in the first half when Dennis Johnson opened a drive with a 28-yard run. That drive ended with the second of Zach Hocker’s three field goals, a 22-yarder.

Arkansas led 19-0 when Wilson threw a 45-yard TD pass to Jarius Wright with 4 minutes left in the first half.

Kansas State, which has lost its last four bowl games since beating Arizona State in the 2002 Holiday Bowl, blocked the extra point and Nigel Malone returned it for two points.

It was 19-9 at halftime after Klein threw a 3-yard TD pass to Andrew McDonald with 26 seconds left in the first half. That score was set up after Wilson was sacked by Adam Davis and fumbled at the Razorbacks 13.

Wildcats defensive end Meshak Williams was injured at the end of the first half, when he made helmet-to-helmet contact with Emmanuel Lamur when both were trying to tackle Wilson, who put his head down to avoid the hit.

Williams remained down on the field for several minutes being tended to by medical personnel and then placed on a stretcher. He gave a thumbs-up signal when being placed on a cart, then when he was being driving off the field extended his right arm high and flashed a Wildcat sign.

Kansas State officials gave no updates on his specific injury or condition.

The Razorbacks played their second game at Cowboys Stadium this season, three months after they overcame an 18-point halftime deficit to beat Big 12 team and future SEC foe Texas A&M 42-38.

In the return trip, Arkansas led the Big 12 opponent at halftime and had mostly throttled Klein and the Kansas State offense. It was the first game for new Razorbacks defensive coordinator Paul Haynes, who was hired in December after Willy Robinson resigned.

Wilson, who threw for a school-record 510 yards in that Oct. 1 game at Cowboys Stadium, was 20 of 31 for 216 yards against Kansas State. Wright had three catches for 88 yards. He had 13 catches for a record 287 yards against the Aggies.

The punt return for a touchdown by Adams was the first in 51 years at the Cotton Bowl. The last was also by a Razorback, when Lance Alworth had a 49-yard punt return for a touchdown in a 7-6 loss to Duke in the 1961 game.

Arkansas led 3-0 after Jake Bequette sacked Klein and forced a fumble, setting up Hocker’s 26-yard field goal.

Tenarius Wright, the Razorbacks’ other defensive end, jumped over a pile to recover the loose ball at the Kansas State 13.

Klein’s fumble came on a second-and-33 play after a sequence that started with his 20-yard run to inside Arkansas territory being wiped out by an illegal shift penalty. He was sacked on the next play before a holding call and a false start pushed the ball all the way back to the 20.

LSU Rolls Past Texas A&M In Cotton Bowl

LSU Rolls Past Texas A&M In Cotton Bowl – The Advocate

Wide receiver Terrence Toliver, a native Texan, caught a Cotton Bowl record-tying three touchdown passes Friday, lifting LSU to a 38-24 victory over Texas A&M at Cowboys Stadium.

Jordan Jefferson accounted for four touchdowns for No. 11 LSU (11-2), which rolled up 446 yards to snap a six-game winning streak for No. 17 Texas A&M (9-4).

LSU erased an early 10-0 deficit behind Toliver and Jefferson. Jefferson hit Toliver for a 47-yard touchdown late in the first quarter, then Jefferson scored on a 1-yard run to give LSU its first lead at 14-10 in the second quarter.

After the Aggies scored to retake the lead, a 17-yard run by Stevan Ridley gave LSU the lead for good with 4:43 left in the second quarter. Jefferson added touchdown passes of 2 and 41 yards to Toliver.

Jefferson completed 10 of 19 passes for 158 yards. Toliver, who is from Hemptsted, Texas, near A&M’s campus in College Station, caught five passes for 112 yards.

LSU intercepted Texas A&M quarterback Ryan Tannehill three times while cornerback Tyrann Mathieu had a sack and fumble return.
