Matt Luke and the Ole Miss Rebels came painfully close to beating Arkansas on Saturday. But the Razorbacks converted on a last second filed goal to knock off the Rebels.
The Rebels led 31-7 at one point in the second quarter but the Arkansas Razorbacks stormed back to make it a game in the second half and scored just before the clock expired. Luke tried icing Arkansas three times, but the move proved unsuccessful.
Here is what Luke said after said after the loss, which dropped Ole Miss to 3-5 on the season.

Matt Luke said there wasn't anything he would've done differently when Ole Miss went up 31-7 other than trying to think of a way prevent those three turnovers.

Matt Luke says he doesn't know what exactly happened on the fumble, but it was a read play. Called it a "freak thing"

Coach Luke is definitely taking this loss hard. He's Ole Miss through and through and this hurts.
