Arkansas fans, media react to controversial call that helps LSU on game-winning touchdown drive
These calls are starting to get ridiculous.
The first half of the Arkansas-LSU game featured a really tough call that went against the Razorbacks and led to some outrage prior to halftime.
That call was so bad, Arkansas’s official Twitter account mocked it.
If only that was the worst call of the day.
During LSU’s game-winning drive, star Arkansas defensive back Jalen Catalon was called for one of the most questionable targeting calls you will ever see.
Not only did Catalon avoid hitting LSU receiver Kayshon Boutte in the head or neck area, the Razorback defender turned his body in order to safely make contact with the Tiger.
Here is the play if you missed it:
The top of his head touches nothing.

Here is another video of the play:
Now we have a targeting review on Arkansas’ side. Catalon hits Boutte high (somehow he holds on to it).

The reaction from Arkansas fans and media was predictable:
He targeted him with his hip!!!! What else can you do? Flag football. No thx.

That's not targeting.

I’m not crying conspiracy but some of these calls that have gone against Arkansas are *very* questionable
