What's next for Derek Carr (and Davante Adams)? Plus, a Liberty Bowl for the ages


Good morning to everyone but especially to…

ARKANSAS

Kansas got off to its first 5-0 start since 2009 this season, but an injury to quarterback Jalon Daniels resulted in a second-half pendulum shift that left the Jayhawks 6-6. Last night’s Liberty Bowl between Kansas and Arkansas was an encapsulation of the Jayhawks’ seesaw season — but in reverse, Christopher Nolan’s “Memento” style. 

A 20-yard touchdown run by AJ Green gave Arkansas a resounding 31-7 lead midway through the second quarter. But Kansas would not go down without a fight in its first bowl game in 14 years, matching the Razorbacks with their own 31-7 run (!) to tie the game at 38 with 41 seconds left in regulation.

The Jayhawks, in fact, scored 18 unanswered in the fourth to force overtime, including two touchdowns, a two-point conversion and a successful onside kick within the final 1:05. A wild three overtimes ensued, and here’s how they played out: 

  • Kansas kept its momentum going by striking first in overtime, with Daniels finding Jared Casey for a two-yard score to make it 45-38. Arkansas answered with a six-yard touchdown run from Rashod Dubinion.
  • In the second overtime, Arkansas quarterback KJ Jefferson took matters into his own hands by rushing for a 20-yard touchdown to give him four all-purpose scores for the game, and he then hit Jaedon Wilson for a two-point conversion. Daniels kept the incredible QB duel going by rushing for a two-yard touchdown and completing a pass to Casey for the game-tying two-point conversion. 
  • Jefferson led Arkansas to victory with a two-point pass to Dubinion in the third overtime, a score Kansas couldn’t match.

Arkansas’ win means they’ve now gone above .500 and won a bowl game each of the last two seasons under coach Sam Pittman. Not a bad stretch at all considering the Razorbacks hadn’t won more than four games in a season since 2016 before then

Raiders will bench Derek Carr for rest of season 🏈

The Derek Carr era seems to be over in Las Vegas. Raiders coach Josh McDaniels announced yesterday that Jarrett Stidham will start at quarterback for the remainder of the 2022 season, a shocking move considering the team has yet to be mathematically eliminated from the playoffs despite its disappointing 6-9 record
