It’s not a game Hugh Freeze will voluntarily watch.
With Ole Miss leading 52-45 in overtime against Arkansas last year, Razorbacks quarterback Brandon Allen completed a pass to tight end Hunter Henry. With pressure coming, Henry heaved the ball backwards, and the ball somehow landed in the hands of running back Alex Collins, who ran the rest of the way for the first down.
The Razorbacks converted the improbable 4th-and-25, and went on to earn a 53-52 overtime contest.
Asked about the play on Wednesday’s SEC teleconference, Freeze said the play still gets to him.
“I assure you if I were to see it, it would still make my stomach churn,” he said. “It was a crucial play in that game that ultimately cost us from going to Atlanta. So it was a smart play from Hunter Henry and their kids finished the game and we didn’t finish the play. It does bother you. We put everything in the trash.
“We’re not going to talk about last year’s game to our team. We just talk about this year’s opponent. Getting focused for it. No doubt, if it comes on, it’s not a pleasant sight.”
