One of the highlights of Ole Miss’ season was Quincy Adeboyejo’s wild 66-yard touchdown catch against Alabama. After an errant snap and a Chad Kelly heave, the ball ricocheted off of several players before falling into the Ole Miss receiver’s arms.
The touchdown gave Ole Miss a 24-10 lead over the Crimson Tide, and the Rebels knocked off the eventual national champs, 43-37.
The play was so spectacular that it earned a nomination for the ESPY Best Play award, which is settled in a bracket format. Adeboyejo’s catch earned the No. 16 seed, and is matched up against Aaron Rodger’s Hail Mary against the Arizona Cardinals, a No. 1 seed.
But when fans go to vote on the award, they’ll find that the video of Adeboyejo’s touchdown is a different clip. One that brings up bad memories for Ole Miss fans.
The video is actually the 4th-and-25 that Arkansas converted in its overtime win over Ole Miss. Had Ole Miss gotten a stop on that play, it would’ve beaten the Razorbacks and would have still been in contention for the SEC West title.
If fans want to see the real video, it is posted below. Voting for the ESPYS ends on July 13 at 8 p.m ET., which is also when the ESPYS air.
