After Arkansas and Ole Miss played a thrilling game a year ago, the Razorbacks edged the Rebels, 34-30, in an entertaining clash between two SEC West - From SI.com
After a thrilling overtime game between these two teams last season, complete with a miraculous conversion on fourth-and-25 thanks to a blind lateral, No.
After the teams traded punts, Kelly’s counterpart, Austin Allen, came through in the clutch, leading the Razorbacks down the field for the winning score with 2:20 left on a nifty handoff to receiver Jared Cornelius.
After the Razorbacks couldn’t hang with a resurgent Texas A&M team and proved unable to match up with the juggernaut that is Alabama, we learned that they weren’t ready to break into the upper tier of the SEC this season, despite hinting to that potential early in the year (and at the end of the past couple seasons).
Holding the Rebels to three-and-outs on their final two possessions was clutch.
And a return to a New Year’s Six bowl is likely out of the question, too, even if it wins out, with that additional loss to Florida State hurting its résumé.
