The Arkansas Razorbacks are going bowling again. It’s becoming a trend with coach Sam Pittman. The Razorbacks will play in the postseason for the second consecutive year, taking on Big 12 foe Kansas at 4:30 p.m. (Central time) on Wednesday, Dec. 28, at the Liberty Bowl in Memphis, Tenn.

A winning season is on the line for both teams, who enter the game with identical 6-6 records. Pittman said he just wanted to become bowl eligible and the Razorbacks did just that, picking up a 6th win with a 42-27 defeat of Ole Miss. Now they make their way to the Liberty Bowl for the first time since the 2015 season when they defeated Kansas State, 45-23, on Jan. 2, 2016.

Here are 5 things to know about Arkansas’ upstart opponent in the Liberty Bowl.

Kansas returns to the postseason

The bowl drought for Kansas is no more. The last time the Jayhawks qualified for the postseason was the 2008 Insight Bowl. But 14 years later, 2nd-year coach Lance Leipold leads them back.

The Jayhawks won that 2008 bowl game, 42-21, against Minnesota. Kansas has won its past 3 bowl appearances and 5 of its past 6. The Jayhawks haven’t lost a bowl game since the 2003 Tangerine Bowl, a 56-26 setback at the hands of North Carolina State and quarterback Philip Rivers.

Jayhawks reeling

Kansas started the season 5-0 and rose to No. 19 in the AP poll before the roof caved in, beginning with a 38-31 loss at home to playoff-bound Texas Christian. That was the first of 3 consecutive losses, the others coming at Oklahoma (52-42) and at Baylor (35-23). But they became bowl-eligible with a 37-16 thumping of then-No. 18 Oklahoma State on Nov. 5.

It was a short reprieve from the free fall, however. Consecutive losses at Texas Tech (43-28), to Texas (55-14) and at NY6 Bowl-bound Kansas State (47-27) left the Jayhawks stumbling to the end of the regular season.

Two 1,000-yard passers

Kansas doesn’t have just one 1,000-yard passer, it has a pair. Junior Jalon Daniels opened the season as the starter and steered the Jayhawks to their first 5-0 start since 2009. But a shoulder injury in the next game, the loss to TCU, sent Daniels to the sideline. He missed the next 4 games and returned for Kansas’ final 2 games of the regular season.

In his absence, senior Jason Bean performed well, passing for at least 200 yards in 5 consecutive games.

For the season, Daniels has thrown for 1,470 yards and 13 touchdowns with just 2 interceptions in 175 passing attempts (115-for-175). Bean has thrown for 1,280 yards and 14 touchdowns. He has 4 picks in 135 throws (87-for-135).

Watch RB Devin Neal

The sophomore finished the regular season ranked 5th in the Big 12 with 1,061 yards rushing (9 TDs). He averaged 6.2 yards a carry and played a key role in the upset of Oklahoma State, rushing for a career-high 224 yards on 32 carries.

In addition, he caught 6 passes in that game for 110 yards to become the first Kansas player to put up 200-plus rushing yards and 100-plus receiving yards in a single game

Kansas is undefeated all-time vs. Arkansas

It’s been more than 100 years, but Kansas leads the all-time series against Arkansas, 2-0. The teams first played in 1905 in Fayetteville, with the Jayhawks coming away with a 6-0 victory. The last time they played was a year later, 1906 in Lawrence, Kan., with the Jayhawks rolling to a 37-5 victory.

More than 100 years later, the teams meet again, and for the first time at a neutral site.
