At Arlington, Texas

Kansas State (10-2) vs. Arkansas (10-2),

8 p.m. (FOX)

Line: Arkansas by 7 1/2 .

Series record: Kansas State leads 3-1.

WHAT’S AT STAKE

Arkansas, which only lost to No. 1 LSU and No. 2 Alabama, is going for its first 11-win season since 1977. Kansas State had six 11-win seasons in a seven-year span during the first tenure of coach Bill Snyder, who again has revived the Wildcats. This is the only bowl matchup between the Big 12 and the SEC, which will add current Big 12 teams Missouri and Texas A&M next season.

KEY MATCHUP

The junior quarterbacks with drastically different styles. Arkansas’ Tyler Wilson has thrown for 3,422 yards and 22 touchdowns with negative rushing yards. Wilson, the All-SEC quarterback who had a school-record 510 yards passing in a game at Cowboys Stadium, has more completions (257) this season than Kansas State’s Collin Klein has attempts (251). But Klein has run for 1,099 yards and 26 touchdowns, one short of the FBS record for quarterbacks, while also throwing for 1,745 yards and 12 TDs. Klein has accounted for 38 of K-State’s 45 offensive touchdowns and was the All-Big 12 all-purpose player, an honor usually reserved for a return specialist, in a league featuring Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback Robert Griffin III.

PLAYERS TO WATCH

Arkansas: All-SEC WRs Jarius Wright and Joe Adams. Wright, Arkansas’ career receptions leader, leads the SEC with 63 catches for 1,029 yards and 11 touchdowns this season. Adams, No. 2 on the Razorbacks’ career receptions list, is the only NCAA player with rushing, receiving and multiple punt return TDs this season.

Kansas State: All-Big 12 LB Arthur Brown. With 95 tackles, he’s looking to become the first K-State player with 100 tackles since 2006. He also has 7 1/2 tackles for losses and two sacks.

FACTS & FIGURES

Arkansas is No. 6 in the BCS standings, and Kansas State is No. 8. This is the only non-BCS bowl featuring two teams from the top 15 of those rankings. ... Kansas State and Arkansas last played in 1967, their only meeting since 1926. ... The Razorbacks are in their 12th Cotton Bowl, where they have a 3-7-1 record. They lost there the last two times against Big 12 opponents, to Missouri in 2008 and Oklahoma in 2002. ... K-State beat Tennessee of the SEC in its last Cotton Bowl 11 years ago. ...The Wildcats have eight wins by seven points or less. That is the most victories by one score in one season ever for a team from a conference with an automatic BCS bid. ... Arkansas has 13 touchdowns of more than 50 yards this season, with at least one such long play in nine games.
