It’s the most wonderful time of the year for Arkansas Football fans—bowl season. The Razorbacks are preparing to compete in the Outback Bowl, set for Jan. 1 at 11 AM CT on ESPN2.
The Hogs are starting to get a sense of who will be available to play and who will be sitting out of the contest.
We already know star wideout Treylon Burks is opting out to prepare for the 2022 NFL Draft. Trey Williams will be doing the same, according to his recent announcement. Those seem to be the only key players missing from the game. We’ll need all we can get to compete against Penn State.
For the players that are returning and suiting up in the game, they are in for a real treat.
The Arkansas Football team will receive a nice haul of gifts and swag for competing in the Outback Bowl 2021
According to a recent report from Street & Smith, the participants in the Outback Bowl are set to receive the following:
- $150 Amazon gift card
- Fossil watch
- Jostens ring
- $25 Outback Steakhouse gift card
This is a nice haul, but not as nice as some of the swag and gifts other upper-echelon bowl games. The Fiesta Bowl participants are receiving a PS5 console and a game. Participants in the Cheez-It Bowl are set to receive a $400 Amazon gift card.
Still, I’m sure all the Razorback players are appreciative of these really nice gifts and will be putting them to good use as they prepare for team’s first bowl game appearance since 2016 at the Belk Bowl.
The Razorbacks are hoping to get their first win at a bowl game since 2015 when they competed in the Liberty Bowl in Memphis, Tenn.
