Kansas State, Arkansas teams watch Stars

January, 3, 2012
DALLAS -- As part of the AT&T Cotton Bowl Classic festivities, both teams -- Arkansas and Kansas State -- are attending the Stars-Red Wings game tonight.

The Arkansas players could be mistaken for Wings fans, thanks to the red color that is already evident in parts of American Airlines Center. But it's not tough to find the Wildcats. The purple-clad team is sitting in one corner and cheering pretty loudly, I might add.

Arkansas and Kansas State face each other on Friday at Cowboys Stadium. It's a battle of No. 6 vs. No. 8 in the BCS, just a few days before the national title game.
