247 Sports: TransPerfect Music City Bowl

Dec 30th, Nashville TN

Opponent: Arkansas

247 Sports has the Nittany Lions traveling to Nashville and the Music City Bowl, to take on an SEC opponent in Arkansas.

Arkansas has had a turnaround season that has surprised many and even saw them ranked inside the top ten earlier this year. Much like Penn State Football though, Arkansas hit some bumps in the road with a very difficult schedule.
