Sugar Bowl Predicition

6 Ohio State vs. 8 Arkansas
QB Comparison:
Ohio State's Terrelle Pryor 2,551 passing yards, 25 touchdowns, 11 interceptions
Arkansas's Ryan Mallett 3,592 passing yards, 30 touchdowns, 11 interceptions
RB Comparison
Ohio State's Daniel Herron 1,068 rushing yards, 15 touchdowns
Arkansas's Knile Davis 1,183 rushing yards, 13 touchdowns

Defensive Comparison:Ohio State has a lethal line starting from the line up. Cameron Heyward and Soloman Thomas will bring pressure from the sides and hard-working linebackers Brian Rolle and Ross Homan will make plays. Arkansas is a better offensive team but still has playmakers on defense including end Jake Bequette. Jerry Franlin is also a domiant presence in the middle. These two must contain Pryor or the defense will get dominated by the spectacular playmaking ability of Pryor.

Overlook: This game is one of the best quarterback wars this year, between Terrelle Pryor and Ryan Mallett. Amazingly, they have two different styles. Pryor can make plays with his feet just as often as he passes while Mallett is a flame throwing yard-gainer. The Buckeyes got a big relief when the five players that were suspended the first six games of next season were cleared to play. This includes Pryor and Herron. This means that the balanced Buckeyes offense and defense will thrive over the hot Razorbacks.
Ohio State, 34 Arkansas, 28
