Ole Miss blocks Arkansas FG to force OT, but Razorbacks win on 2-point conversion
Ole Miss blocked a field goal as time expired to force overtime against Arkansas on Saturday, but the Razorbacks came storming back to secure a 53-52 victory in the craziest fashion imaginable.
In regulation, the Rebels turned the ball over on downs around midfield with nine seconds left with Ole Miss and Arkansas tied up at 45-45. The Razorbacks completed a pass that set up a 47-yard field goal attempt, which was blocked by Ole Miss defensive back Tony Bridges.
In overtime, the Rebels took a quick seven-point lead when quarterback Chad Kelly capped off a three-play drive with an eight-yard touchdown run. But Arkansas responded by miraculously converting a 4th-and-25 on a desperation lateral from Hunter Henry to Alex Collins. Quarterback Brandon Allen then threw a touchdown and ran in the game-winning two-point conversion.
In a season already full of incredible overtime games played by the Razorbacks, their third was one of the most unbelievable games you’ll ever see.
