Collins to control Liberty Bowl?
Alex Collins looks to cap off a solid 2015 season today in the Liberty Bowl when Arkansas takes on Kansas State.
According to oddsmakers at MyBookie.ag, Arkansas is the heavy favorite in this game, as the Razorbacks are getting odds of -13 points against Kansas State. The over/under total for the game has been set at 55.5 points. These two meet today at 3:20PM ET on ESPN. The game is being held from Liberty Bowl Memorial Stadium in Memphis, TN.
Collins had a lot of expectations to step up this season or Arkansas (7-5, 7-5 ATS), especially after Jonathan Williams was injured before the season got underway. Collins responded in a big way, rushing for 1,392 yards with 17 touchdowns this year. He took the bulk of the carries for Arkansas this year and produced nine 100-yard games.
Arkansas is up against Kansas State (6-6, 6-6 ATS) today. The Wildcats are usually known for defense, but that hasn’t been the case this year. K-State ranks 101st in total defense, allowing 442.5 yards per game. Oddsmakers think that means big things for Collins today, as his over/under for rushing yards has been set at 133.5. The Wildcats are giving up 159.4 rushing yards per game this season while Collins already has five games over 134 yards this season. Look for the 5-11 junior back to be established early in this game and continue to lead the Arkansas offense.
