MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) - Arkansas will be the Southeastern
Conference team playing two-time Conference USA champ East Carolina in the Liberty Bowl on Jan. 2.

Bowl officials on Sunday confirmed that Arkansas was in. The
Razorbacks (7-5) lost to Missouri in the Cotton Bowl in January

East Carolina wrapped up a second straight visit to Memphis by
upsetting No. 18 Houston 38-32 in the C-USA championship on
Saturday. The Pirates (9-4) are the first C-USA team to win
consecutive league titles since the conference split into
divisional play in 2005.
