No 2. The Hogs wide receiving corp holds their own without Treylon Burks

Treylon Burks is one of several players who have chosen to opt-out of competing in the 2022 Outback Bowl.

Burks is very likely to be a first round draft pick in the 2022 NFL Draft, so no one should fault him for his decision.

The Hogs will expect De’Vion Warren, Warren Thompson and Tyson Morris to step-up big time in the game. They’ll get plenty of opportunities to shine with Jefferson’s favorite target out of the game.

No 3. The Razorbacks will record 350+ rushing yards against Penn State

The Hogs will likely be relying on their bread and butter to gain the upper hand on Penn State in this bowl game.

The Hogs are an incredibly deep team at running back, coupled with the dual threat of Jefferson, the team can absolutely get to 350 or more rushing yards in this game.

It’ll be a running back-by committee approach with Dominique Johnson, Trelon Smith, Raheim Sanders all taking turns at wearing down that impressive Penn State defensive line. Sooner or later one of these guys will rip off a huge run.
