Arkansas coach Sam Pittman has seen things work both ways in Oxford.
He was on the staff for the "Henry Heave" in 2015 and the decision to go for a 2-point conversion worked and the Razorbacks got a win.
Not this time. Ole Miss survived a scare at the end for a 52-51 win over the Razorbacks to knock them down to 4-2 on the season with Auburn coming to Fayetteville next week.
After KJ Jefferson hit Warren Thompson with a 9-yard scoring pass on the last play of regulation, the decision was already made to go for a 2-point conversion ... and he would do it again.
"I'd do it again 100% of the time the situation we were in," Pittman said later. "Ole Miss was just scoring EASILY. We had to work for a little bit of ours. Theirs was coming in bunches and bunches of yards.
"We just didn't convert it."
It was almost a track meet. The two teams combined for 1,287 yards and it was an offensive showcase.
KJ Jefferson was 25-of-35 for 326 yards, three touchdowns and a meaningless interception on a Hail Mary in the end zone at the end of the first half. He also ran for three touchdowns, getting 85 yards on 20 carries.
Matt Corral was 14-of-21 for 287 yards and two touchdowns. More importantly, he ran for 94 yards and scored twice.
Neither team showed a particularly keen interest in tackling anybody and that was what made this a shootout that came down to the last play plus one.
A typical Hogs' game with the Rebels.
