Arkansas Going Bowling?

The Razorbacks inched closer to becoming bowl eligible over the weekend after flattening South Carolina in Fayetteville. Arkansas defeated Spurrier's Gamecocks 33-16 in dominating fashion with big play making from several hog players.

With the win hog fans are speculating what bowl the Razorbacks will make. While not bowl eligible yet, the next two games are favorable with Troy in Fayetteville and Mississippi State in Little Rock. The final game of the year is against LSU in Baton Rouge the Saturday night after Thanksgiving. With three wins in a row, the Razorbacks would finish the season 8-4 and a likely birth in the Cotton Bowl, which will be played at Jerry World.

None of the games are guarantees though, so the players have to keep laying it all out on the field to get there. After missing a bowl game in Petrino's first year, fans, players, and coaches are itching to get back into that tradition.
