Ole Miss Drops Heartbreaker to the Razorbacks

Rebels embrace ‘next man up’ philosophy as Ta’amu steps in at QB

Sophomore Connor Limpert kicked a 34-yard field goal with five seconds remaining as Arkansas recovered from a 24-point deficit to post a 38-37 victory over MS on Saturday in SEC play at Oxford, Miss.

The Rebels are 3-4 but have managed just one win in conference play so far.

The win snapped a three-game losing streak for Arkansas and marked the Razorbacks first SEC win of the season. Ta'amu (6'2/212), who ascended to the QB1 post after Shea Patterson's season-ending knee injury, was making his first career start.

Arkansas continues to look for answers on defense after surrendering a whopping 191 points in SEC losses to Texas A&M, South Carolina, Alabama and Auburn; the Tigers were the most recent team to feast on the Razorbacks, racking up 629 yards of total offense in a 52-20 evisceration.

Ole Miss would then take a 31-21 lead at halftime.

As pointed out by Chris Vannini of The Athletic, it's a play that Arkansas offensive coordinator Dan Enos ran successfully a few times back when he was the OC for Michigan State in 2007.

According to 247Sports, the 24-point comeback was the largest come-from-behind win in Arkansas history. The Rebels were not tricked at all, and the play ended with an incomplete pass. For instance, Agim was closing on Ole Miss quarterback Jordan Ta'amu when he and running back Eric Swinney had difficulty exchanging a handoff late in the fourth quarter.

Senior Gary Wunderlich booted a 37-yard field goal and Ta'amu scored on an 8-yard keeper to boost the lead to 24 with 10:51 left in the first half.
