Freeze recounts last year's crazy play between Ole Miss and Arkansas
This weekend, No. 12 Ole Miss will pay a visit to take on No. 22 Arkansas in Fayetteville.
The recent history between these two programs is more than fascinating. Bret Bielema’s team upended the Rebels by a score of 53-52 last year. The events leading up to the Arkansas victory were simply stunning.
Facing a 4th-and-25 in overtime, Arkansas converted on a bizarre pass play to former tight end Hunter Henry — whom then threw a lateral over his head whilst being tackled. It was picked up by former running back Alex Collins, who then ran for the first down.
The Razorbacks then scored a touchdown to completely shock Hugh Freeze’s team in Oxford. It will ultimately be a play forever cemented into Arkansas lore, and one played on a loop for years to come.

When asked about the play today during a teleconference, Freeze didn’t mince words:
“I don’t voluntarily watch it. Still makes my stomach turn. It was a smart play by Hunter Henry, we didn’t finish the play, it does bother you. We don’t bring it up, this is a new year and an new team. However, it’s not a pleasant site if [the play] does come on [television].”
