Arkansas AD reacts to controversial Auburn ending: 'Razorbacks were winners on Pat Dye Field tonight'
Don’t you try to tell Hunter Yurachek that the Razorbacks didn’t win on Saturday.
If you somehow missed it, Arkansas was up by two points late in the game but Auburn was driving during the final possession of the contest.
Just before what would be a game-winning field goal kick, Auburn QB Bo Nix attempted to spike the ball but he bobbled the snap, picked up the ball and clearly threw the ball behind him during his spike attempt.
Arkansas then jumped on the ball.
As we all know, a backward pass should be considered a fumble.
The play was reviewed and incredibly intentional grounding was called. Not a fumble. Not a spike. Intentional grounding.
Auburn then kicked a field goal and won 30-28.
Immediately after the game, the Arkansas AD offered up his take on the referees stealing a win over his team.
The scoreboard in the end will not reflect it nor will our record, but @RazorbackFB were winners on Pat Dye Field tonight. I am so proud of everyone associated with this program and as we said last week this is just the beginning. #OneRazorback https://t.co/HWq0RMEPeK
