Arkansas vs. Penn State: Outback Bowl Pick
The Razorbacks will be without Burks, but should have the rest of the team intact. Penn State has more talent overall, but will be missing a lot of that defense with opt-outs. It’s hard to bet on a team missing players to hang with a tough SEC outfit like Arkansas.
