Arkansas gets improbable 53-52 OT win over No. 19 Ole Miss
OXFORD, Miss. - Brandon Allen threw his sixth touchdown pass and then ran for a 2-point conversion to lead Arkansas to an improbable 53-52 overtime win over No. 19 Mississippi on Saturday.
Arkansas (5-4, 3-2) pulled off the victory thanks to two wild plays in overtime.
The Razorbacks kept the game alive on fourth-and-25 when Allen completed a pass to Hunter Henry, who flung the ball backward and Alex Collins picked it up on the bounce and then ran it for a 31-yard gain.
After Arkansas scored its overtime touchdown, its first attempt at the 2-point conversion failed but Ole Miss' Marquis Haynes was called for a face mask penalty which gave the Razorbacks another chance.
Allen threw for a career-high 442 yards.
Ole Miss (7-3, 4-2) lost despite three passing touchdowns and three rushing touchdowns by Chad Kelly.
