The Hogs hosted #12 Ole Miss in Fayetteville and had a game winning defensive stop in 34-30 win, their third consecutive victory over the Black Bears. Hogs’ QB Austin Allen out-dueled Ole Miss QB Chad Kelly in passing for three touchdowns to Kelly’s one. The Hogs finally got their rushing game in order as Rawleigh Williams III ran for 180 yards and earned SEC Offensive Player of the Week honors for his effort. Santos Ramirez atoned for some missed tackles earlier in the game with two big hits, one that forced an incompletion and the other that forced Kelly to fumble the ball backwards and out of bounds. It appeared that Kelly would get the first down had he not fumbled, but instead the Hogs got possession on downs and were able to run out the clock and celebrate the win. Once again kicker Toby Baker was outstanding, repeatedly flipping field position as he had three kicks where Ole Miss started inside of their own 20. Adam McFain solidified the field goal unit in making both attempts, one of 36 yards and the other from 43 yards.
The Razorbacks travel to Auburn next week in an attempt to flatten the tires on the Gus bus and extend their win streak to two. The Tigers defense will likely provide more of a challenge for the Hogs than Ole Miss. Defensively the Hogs will face another up-tempo offense and a QB with the ability to make plays with his legs. Can the Hogs derail the Gus bus and continue their quest for an upper echelon bowl? Or will their headsets mysteriously quit working? Possibly another phantom injury – conveniently occurring when Auburn is out of time outs? All this and more will be answered Saturday beginning at 6 pm.
