The Arkansas Razorbacks and Penn State Nittany Lions meet in the Outback Bowl to ring in the new year. Both teams finished with strong seasons, even if the journey along the way was volatile and ultimately left both fanbases wanting more.
The Razorbacks will be without wide receiver Treylon Burks due to NFL draft considerations, but look for the other key players to be in the mix. KJ Jefferson will look to complete a big season with a bowl win, and head coach Sam Pittman will want this to show he’s got the program headed in the right direction.
Penn State had a flurry of opt-outs ahead of the bowl game, which head coach James Franklin said was not unexpected. The Nittany Lions have risen to new heights under Franklin, and a bowl victory would keep that upward trajectory going into next season.
