Why Treylon Burks should compete in the Hogs Bowl Game

Treylon Burks has already accomplished a lot in his career as an Arkansas Razorback.

But, if he were to stay and compete in his senior season, he’d have the opportunity to solidify himself as the greatest wide receiver in program history. He became just the fourth receiver in Arkansas Razorback history to record 1,000 receiving yards in a single season and has a chance to add his name to the record books should he play one more game.

Heck, he just might even be the greatest player in modern history to ever don the Red and White. He would certainly be in the argument along with guys like Matt Jones, Marcus Monk, Cobi Hamilton, Darren McFadden, Hunter Henry, Felix Jones and Peyton Hillis.

You compete in the bowl game to finish the incredible story he started in 2019 as a freshman. You compete in the bowl game because the team will absolutely need you against whoever they play.

Fellow potential 2022 NFL Draft first round selection and Ole Miss standout Matt Corral said he’s playing in whichever Bowl Game Ole Miss accepts.

If Corral and Burks both compete in their team’s respective bowl games it would go a long way in bucking the latest trend of high-value NFL prospects opting out of their team’s bowl game.

This Bowl Game has huge meaning for the entire state of Arkansas and everyone who wears a Razorback uniform.
