Arkansas wins a thriller 38-37 over Ole Miss

Redshirt freshman quarterback Cole Kelley passed for three touchdowns and ran for one, and senior cornerback Kevin Richardson contributed a 22-yard fumble-return touchdown for the Razorbacks (3-5, 1-4), who halted a three-game losing streak.

Kelley began the Arkansas comeback when he scored on a 15-yard keeper with 2:44 left in the half and then tossed a 23-yard scoring pass to sophomore receiver Deon Stewart to make it a 10-point margin with 13 seconds left.

Quarterback Jordan Ta'amu found pay twice on the ground with a 49-yard scamper and an eight-yard dash.

Even after all that - and a 31-7 first half deficit - Arkansas came all the way back and won, 38-37, with a field goal in the final seconds.

Running back Eric Sweeney got in the scoring action with a two-yard run into the end zone.

Ole Miss welcomes Arkansas to Oxford, Miss.

Arkansas continues to look for answers on defense after surrendering a whopping 191 points in SEC losses to Texas A&M, South Carolina, Alabama and Auburn; the Tigers were the most recent team to feast on the Razorbacks, racking up 629 yards of total offense in a 52-20 evisceration.

The Razorbacks would have a game winning field goal drive to secure the win from 34 yards out.

Ole Miss turned the ball over three times, including a fumble recovered for a touchdown late in the fourth quarter that shortened their lead to 37-35. But from there on, Ta'amu and the offense went cold. He added 76 rushing yards and two scores.
