Arkansas Converts Do-or-Die 4th and 25 with Crazy Lateral Play, Wins on 2-Point Conversion


Facing 4th and 25 in overtime and needed a conversion against Ole Miss to extend the game, Arkansas drew this play up. Tight end Hunter Henry caught a pass near the sideline and heaved a wild lateral backward. After a bounce it landed in running back Alex Collins’ hands–who sprinted for an extremely improbable first down.

The play was upheld after a review.

The Razorbacks went on to score a touchdown and Bret Bielema opted to go for the win with a two-point conversion. Brandon Allen found paydirt with a keeper to give Arkansas a wild 53-52 win.
