Arkansas and Kansas State will both enter tonight's AT&T Cotton Bowl Classic at Cowboys Stadium with a chip on their shoulders over the "peculiarities" of the BCS selection process. Both teams put together resumes worthy of inclusion - the Hogs finished 10-2 in a brutal SEC Western Division, only losing to national title contenders Alabama and LSU, while the Wildcats also finished 10-2, surprising everyone in the Big 12 save for Oklahoma and Oklahoma State.
Both schools could play the underdog card for their quarterbacks, too: Arkansas' Tyler Wilson put up a great (yet largely forgotten) season of 3,422 yards and 22 touchdowns, while K State quarterback Collin Klein's mobility has been a key to the Wildcat resurgence, as he's rushed for 26 touchdowns.
Date / time: Friday, January 6, 7 p.m. CT
Location: Cowboys Stadium, Arlington, Texas
