If College Football Had A Playoff: No. 9 Michigan State At No. 8 Arkansas

New, 1 comment

Auburn won the first matchup in dominant fashion in yesterday's vote and will play the winner of this matchup. This matchup would be a great game and no one can deny that. The home crowd for the Razorbacks would be going crazy in this game and we would get to see how well Arkansas quarterback Ryan Mallett can handle the Spartan defense.

Well, WhatifSports.com predicts a shoot out with Arkansas winning by a score of 55-34. Ryan Mallet would be the player of the game with five touchdowns and 359 passing yards. Michigan State had a more balanced attack with just under 200 yards rushing and quarterback Kirk Cousins had 289 yards.

Arkansas used a monster second half by outscoring Michigan State 31-3. The winner in the fan vote takes on Auburn in the quarterfinal matchup.

Now, it is time for the viewers to vote in this matchup to see who advances. Each matchup will be posted at 10 a.m. mountain time and lasts for 24 hours, so spread the word and vote. Also, discuss how this matchup may turn out if actually played.
