The 2012 Cotton Bowl in Arlington, Texas has been won by the Arkansas over Kansas State, 29-16.

Joe Adams had his fourth punt return for a touchdown in the 2011 season as the #7 Razorbacks matched a school-record for wins with 11 by defeating the #11 Wildcats.

The other Arkansas team’s who have won 11 games in a season, is the 1964 and 1977 editions.

Adams’ 51-yard return early in the second quarter gave Arkansas (11-2) a 10-0 advantage.

Arkansas quarterback Tyler Wilson threw two touchdown passes.

Kansas State, who finishes the season at 10-3, scored 16 points in a row to close to within 19-16.

Wildcats quarterback Collin Klein tied the Big 12 record with his 27th rushing touchdown of the season and matched the Football Bowl Subdivision record for a quarterback.

GAME NOTES:

*Although the two schools are less than 400 miles apart, they have played only four times, with the last meeting in 1967. Kansas State leads the series 3-2.

* The Razorbacks only losses were to LSU and Alabama, the national title contenders.

* The Wildcats losses were to Oklahoma and Oklahoma State.

* Arkansas QB Tyler Wilson led the SEC in passing for more than 285 yards a game.

* Arkansas WR Jarius Wright had 1,029 yards receiving on 63 receptions and 11 touchdowns. All of his stats are single-season school records. He produced all of those stats in 11 games and sat our one game with an injury. He led the SEC with 6 catches and 94 yards a game.

* Kansas State QB Collin Klein is very good. He accounted for 66% of the plays that the Wildcats and 69% of the team’s total offense. The 6’5, 226-pound junior rushed for 1,099 yards this season.

Lack of success at Ole Miss leads Nutt to resign

Two years ago, Mississippi Rebels head coach Houston Nutt seemed to have his football program on the upswing.

The Arkansas native arrived in Oxford, Mississippi after a 10-year career at SEC rival Arkansas and he helped lead the Rebels off to a good start of 18-8 during the first two years which included Cotton Bowl wins over Texas Tech and Oklahoma State in back-to-back years.

The Rebels had not enjoyed that kind of success two seasons in a row in almost 40 years. But everyone overlooked the fact that Nutt achieved success with the players left over from previous head coach Ed Orgeron. He could not upgrade the roster with his own recruits.

That is the reason why on Monday, the 54-year-old Nutt announced he’ll resign at the end of the season. He’ll stay on to coach the final three games against Louisiana Tech, LSU and Mississippi State, according to Rebels athletic director Pete Boone.

Ole Miss has lost 12 straight SEC football games, including the 30-13 debacle last Saturday against Kentucky. The Rebels are a disappointing 2-7, 0-6 in the tough SEC this year.

Nutt, who is earning $2.7 million this season, has a 24-23 record at Ole Miss.

The downward spiral for Nutt and his program was in the 2010 season opener, when Jacksonville State upset the Rebels in double overtime 49-48. The fans in Oxford were appalled and called for his resignation. That was the first time in the school’s football history that the Rebels had lost to a Football Championship Subdivision team.

The Rebels can’t seem to find and keep a football coach for long. The next hiring will be their fifth since 1998 and third since 2007.

The Humanitarian Bowl has joined the other bowls with a commodity name.

The new corporate sponsor of the bowl is “The Famous Idaho Potato Bowl.”

The Idaho Potato Commission signed a naming rights deal to sponsor the game through the 2016 season.

The game features teams from the Mid-American Conference and the Western Conference.

The name follows a tradition of other commodity-named bowls, Orange Bowl and the Cotton Bowl.

No more guessing, Rodriguez out as Michigan coach

All of the speculation that has gone on since Rich Rodriguez arrived in Ann Arbor, can now be put to rest.

After a three year record of 15-22, his time as the Michigan head coach has ended.

There have been several coaches that Michigan wanted but those coaches do not want them: Bo Pelini of Nebraska, Jim Harbaugh of Stanford, but he is now with the San Francisco 49ers. Gary Pinkel of Missouri said no and there were reports that they want LSU’s Les Miles, but he didn’t seem interested when asked at the Cotton Bowl by reporters.

The 47-year-old Rodriguez left Ann Arbor with a tenure that was marred by turmoil and controversy on and off the field. He experienced more losses than the program has had in decades. His ledger includes:

*A 6-18 record in the Big Ten. He went 0-3 against both Michigan State and Ohio State, the Wolverines top two arch-rivals.

* The first losing season at Michigan in more than 40 years. His first team went 3-9; Michigan’s last losing season (4-6) came in 1967 under Bump Elliott.

* Three years of NCAA  probation for five major rules violations. One of the NCAA’s most historic football programs had never been on probation before.

* Michigan’s streak of playing in a bowl game every year since 1975 ended his first year and the second year they did not participate in a bowl. This season, Michigan was hammered in the Gator Bowl by Mississippi State, 52-14, the worst bowl loss in history.

When Rodriguez was hired away from West Virginia, he agreed to a six-year, $15 million contract that stated that he would be paid a $2.5 million buyout if fired on or after January 1, 2011.
