Liberty Bowl Kansas vs Arkansas Prediction and Odds 2022
Our Liberty Bowl prediction is from The Duel's official Kansas vs Arkansas betting preview.
Kansas' early season success was a great feel-good storyline, but its defense regressed as the season went on. The Jayhawks went from allowing 24.0 points per game in their first five games to giving up an average of 40.9 over their final seven games. Talk about falling apart.
A shaky run defense was to blame as Kansas finished last in the Big 12 when it came to rushing yards allowed per game (193.8). Look for Arkansas' powerful backfield to make an impact in this matchup, as running back Raheim Sanders and quarterback KJ Jefferson have combined for 1,936 rushing yards.
Arkansas needs this win to salvage an otherwise disappointing season, so I'll back the Razorbacks to pick up their third straight win in the Liberty Bowl.
