FAYETTEVILLE, AR - The Southeastern Conference says the referee in the Alabama-Arkansas game mistakenly kept the clock running after a penalty near the end of the game, allowing the Crimson Tide to end the game without running a final play.

Spokesman Chuck Dunlap says referee Penn Wagers signaled for the clock to start with 1:01 remaining in Alabama's 14-13 win, after guard Arie Kouandjio had been called for a false-start penalty on third-and-2. However, the clock should have started on the snap.

The Razorbacks stopped the Crimson Tide on third-and-7, but the clock runoff allowed Alabama to end the game without running a play on fourth down.

Dunlap declined to say if Wagers would face a reprimand.
