The 2012 Cotton Bowl features two explosive offenses in the Kansas State Wildcats and the Arkansas Razorbacks. Both teams know how to put up tons of yards and points in bunches. The Razorbacks come in on the arm of quarterback Tyler Wilson, but Kansas State head coach Bill Snyder knows it's not all about passing for the Razorbacks.
"I don't know so much that it's just their offense or just their defense," Snyder told The Wichita Eagle. "I just see them as a well-balanced football team. They have strengths in all segments of the game. I think they are a very physical defensive football team, they're a very fast football team, they're a sound defensive football team. But I could say very, very positive things, which I have, about their offense and their kicking game. I just think they are a well-balanced football team."
The Razorbacks are 37th in the country in points allowed per game, giving up 22.8 per game. The Razorbacks high powered offense typically has teams playing catch up, which allows guys like defensive end Jake Bequette to pin their ears back and rush the passer.
