Arkansas Razorbacks vs Ole Miss Rebels: Full Stats, Highlights, Videos, and more


Final Score: Arkansas Razorbacks 53 – Ole Miss Rebels 52


Both the Arkansas Razorbacks and the Ole Miss Rebels were amazing on the offensive side of the ball. The two teams went back and forth all night long in a high scoring shootout. Arkansas tied the game up with :53 seconds left after a touchdown pass from Brandon Allen to Dominique Reed. After the kickoff return, Ole Miss had :47 seconds to get into field goal range or score a touchdown.

Neither defense played their best game on the night, but the Arkansas defense got a huge stop with :09 seconds left in the 4th quarter. The Hogs took over near midfield, and Allen hit Reed near the 30 to set up a Cole Hedlund field goal. The FG was blocked, and the game went into overtime.

In the first overtime, very similar to the Auburn game, Ole Miss came out like a shot against he Hogs defense. 3 plays and a score on a QB scramble by Chad Kelley. He had 3 rushing touchdowns on the night. The Hogs just could not get the offense together in overtime, and were faced with a 4th and 25 thanks to a penalty and a sack.

Then, in an amazing moment that will go down in Hogs history, Hunter Henry laterals to literally anybody. It bounced off the turf, then was scooped up by Alex Collins, who ran it for a first down. Drew Morgan would catch the touchdown 2 plays later, and then on a 2 point conversion, Brandon Allen dove in for the win.

BRANDON FREAKING ALLEN: 33/45 on the night for 442 yards and SIX TOUCHDOWNS. Not to mention keeping the ball on the winning two point conversion. Allen played a career game tonight, and has the Hogs just 1 win away from bowl eligibility.

DOMINIQUE FREAKING REED: #DominiqueSpeed was a man on a mission tonight. 2 touchdowns, 7 receptions, and 105 yards. Reed also made the catch that set up the (blocked) go ahead field goal with :09 seconds left in regulation. Reed has emerged as a future All-SEC caliber receiver for Arkansas.

DREW FREAKING MORGAN: As Bill O’Brien would say, DREW MORGAN BRINGS THE JUICE. 9 catches, 122 yards and 3 touchdowns, including the overtime score. Morgan is the best downfield blocking receiver in the SEC in my opinion, and was crucial to some big plays tonight in the open field as well.

Also, major shout-out to Hunter Henry, for throwing the ball backwards in the best executed desperation play of the year. Alex Collins gets a shout-out for picking it up and running for the first down, and the offensive line gets a #poundcake for having the mental intelligence to start blocking down field on the play.

Next: Mike Anderson Gets HUGE Commit

The Razorbacks have to travel to LSU next weekend, but right now I am unable to talk about that. All I can do is try and come down off the biggest adrenaline high I’ve had in years watching a Hogs football game. Bret Bielema is now 2-1 in overtime games this year. And in going for it on 4th down, he has lived up to his reputation as the kind of coach that plays to win. I love him for that. And I love Brandon Allen.

Woo Pig.
