Penn State vs Arkansas, Music City Bowl

CBS Sports believes an Arkansas-Penn State matchup could be in the works for Nashville. This would be the same bowl that 247 Sports currently projects, but with a different opponent.

The Hogs taking on Penn State is a popular choice among fans, football experts and pundits. Penn State is a historic football program that plays in the second-best conference in the country.

For reasons we’ve stated before, this would be a matchup with tons of buy-in from Arkansas fans, Penn State fans—college football fans in general.

Sam Pittman vs James Franklin, the Hogs fantastic run game vs Penn State’s ironclad run defense, avenging the SEC’s early season loss to the Big Ten (Auburn)— there are a ton of storylines worth following in this game.

Penn State and Arkansas both travel well, so let’s make this game happen. The Nittany Lions and the Hogs in Nashville— book it.
