Never count out the Razorbacks or the creativity of head coach Sam Pittman.
Down 34-21 with 11:24 to play in the fourth quarter against No. 2 Alabama, No. 21 Arkansas lined up for a field goal. Junior punter Reid Bauer took the snap, moved forward and executed a jump pass to redshirt senior tight end Blake Kern. Kern hauled it in with one hand and took it the distance for a 32-yard score. It was one of the plays of the entire season, one that quieted Bryant-Denny Stadium.
“OHHHHHH!” announcer Gary Danielson said, as Arkansas came within one score of the Crimson Tide.
