Top 5 Finishes in Razorback Football History [VIDEO]
Ok, we've looked at the negative and listed some of the worst calls the Razorbacks have experienced, now let's look at some of the most dramatic finishes!
#10 Arkansas and #2 Texas went to battle in War Memorial Stadium and it came down to the wire. With Arkansas leading 17-14, Texas attempted a 48 yard field goal with seconds left which came up short and preserved the Arkansas victory. It was the Hogs first win over Texas since 1971.
Beaten soundly for most of the game, the Razorbacks rallied to knock off LSU 21-20 at War Memorial Stadium in Little Rock and earn a spot in the SEC Championship game. With seconds remaining on the clock, Matt Jones threw up a prayer to Decori Birmingham in the back corner of the endzone. Touchdown Arkansas! Unbelievable!!
My brothers and I were at this game. What a night! We'll never forget this one!
Arkansas and Tennessee went down to the final moments before T-Martin's pass into the endzone was batted down by James Barret. As Stoerner took a knee to run the final seconds off the clock the crowd sang and then rushed the field after the final gun sounded.
The first ever 7 overtime game in NCAA history saw Matt Jones and Cedric Cobbs lead the Hogs over Eli Manning and the Ole Miss Rebels 57-56. The game ended when Jermaine Petty tackled Dough Zeigler two yards short of the end zone on a two-point conversion. Petty was so excited he ran the entire length of the field in celebration.
I'm glad this game happened when I was in my 20's. I'd probably have a heart attack now.
LSU tied the game with less than a minute left in the game to send it into overtime. Three extra overtime periods later, the Hogs pick off a two point conversion pass in the endzone to win 50-48! After the game, Darren McFadden reminded Les Miles that the name of the state is Arkansas... not Ar-Kansas.
