Arkansas vs Penn State Outback Bowl Prediction
The Hogs (8-4) are going to be without the services of their biggest offensive threat, Treylon Burks. The wide receiver has decided to sit out of the Outback Bowl and will begin preparing for the upcoming 2022 NFL Draft.
Don’t let Penn State’s record (7-5) fool you, the games they lost were very close. They lost four games by a combined 12 points. Only Ohio State defeated Penn State by more than one possession.
These are two really good football teams that played a grueling schedule. They won some games against ranked opponents and lost some games they should have won.
Arkansas is going to have to find a way to slow down Penn State’s passing game and force the offense into making bad decisions.
If the Hogs can get their running game going early and control the tempo, it could be a very good day for Arkansas.
KJ Jefferson has an opportunity to be in the spotlight during the game and will be expected to have a big game. If we see a 275+ passing yards and a 75+ rushing yard-game from Jefferson, the Hogs win this thing.
Prediction: Arkansas 38, Penn State 28
