WATCH: Ole Miss beats Kentucky on spectacular last-second TD catch
Trailing 34-30 late in the fourth quarter of Saturday’s game at Kentucky, the Ole Miss Rebels drove down inside the red zone.
Facing a third-and-goal play, Ole Miss dialed up a pass from QB Jordan Ta’amu to WR D.K. Metcalf, and Metcalf delivered.
As you can see in the video below, Metcalf makes an amazing catch over a Kentucky defender to score the go-ahead touchdown with only five seconds left:

The Rebels held on for the win, stopping the Wildcats’ last-second lateral play to preserve their fourth win of the season.
Kentucky, meanwhile, fell to 6-3 with the loss, falling out of contention for the SEC East title, which Georgia clinched when the Wildcats lost.
Metcalf finished the game with five catches for 83 yards and two scores, but the last-second touchdown was one of the more impressive grabs he made all season.
