The 56th annual Liberty Bowl taking place at Liberty Bowl Stadium in Memphis on January 12, 2016 and will feature the Kansas State Wildcats (6-6) against the Arkansas Razorbacks (7-5).
This is not the first time these two teams have met and played in the Cotton Bowl in 2011 which the Razorbacks won 29-16. This will also be the first time former K-State Defensive Coordinator Bret Bielema, now Arkansas’ head coach, will face his former boss Bill Snyder.
“For us it is about our wonderful fan base,” Snyder said. “We have an awful lot of people who save up their nickels and dimes throught course of the year and the only vacation they take is the one after the season is over. It doesn’t matter where it is they just love to go. It is meaningful to us and it is meaningful to them, as well.”
