Connor Limpert atoned for a missed 44-yard field goal in the first quarter by drilling a 34-yard game-winner on Saturday as Arkansas eked past Ole Miss 38-37 in come-from-behind fashion.
Bret Bielema’s program (3-5, 1-4 SEC) overcame a 31-7 second-quarter deficit to win. Arkansas won for the first time in the Bielema era when trailing by 10 or more points at the half.
Cole Kelley threw for 189 yards and 3 touchdowns, while T.J. Hammonds added 84 rushing yards.
But was a thrilling win enough to cool Bielema’s hot seat? Let’s just say Razorbacks fans haven’t lost their sense of humor.

Christopher John Jordan: Let’s give coach B more money 💰 and an extension.
Brent Pyatt: We’re #13! We’re #13!
Calvin Henry: WPS. I’m in shock….
Christian Priesty Gregory: A win is a win!
Phillip Tolliver: The sun shines on every dogs a– sometimes! This clown wins just enough to keep his job!
Fire Coach Bielema!
Anthony StClair: Good job guys!!! I’m proud of you!!!
Dawn Dutcher: Pleeaase! Ole Miss is one of the few teams that are as bad or worse then the Hogs. It was not a ‘thrilling win’ it was simple luck.
Wesley Oxner: Give Old Miss credit for the win.
Stephen Shroyer: Ole Miss simply blew game, wouldn’t bet Hogs win another unless possibly Missouri…
Randy Myers: Woo pig sooie!!! Give Bret another 15 million dollar 4 yr contract with a buyout on that great great win Long!!!
Tommy Gene Green: Team showed grit. Irregardless. COLE KELLEY is our QB the rest of year. He made some mistakes. Needs lots of mechanic work between now and next year. Could stand to drop 20 lbs. But, when he ran that TD and took that hit the whole team rallied.
Mike Garcia: I watched the last 8 seconds… was too scared to watch the rest.
Sam Chaloner: I don’t care that we won. I’m glad for the kids, but Baby Huey needs to go. The mindset we have is unacceptable!
Drew Rischbieter: Horrendous game. Sloppy play by both teams, but glad the hogs won. Can we pull a Kiffin, and leave Bert in Oxford??
Barbara Martin Williams: WPS! Kept fighting! Good comeback!
