Arkansas seemed to be too much for the Wildcats on Saturday as they rolled over K-State in the Liberty Bowl 43-23.

Senior quarterback Kody Cook led the way for the Wildcats going 12-24 for 163 yards and a touchdown and a extra 19 yards on the ground.

Cook was named K-State’s Outstanding Offensive Player by the Liberty Bowl media.

Freshman fullback Winston Dimel had a big day, recording a touchdown both on the ground and through the air.

On defense, K-State was led by junior linebacker Charmeacheall Moore who had 10 tackles, eight of which were solo.

Moore earned K-State’s Outstanding Defensive Player accolades.

Junior defensive end Jordan Willis made his mark as well, recording two sacks against a Arkansas offensive line that had only allowed 12 thoughout the entire season.
