  Jalen Catalon saw nothing but green grass in front of him. Well, green grass and Matt Corral. But the redshirt freshman made quick work of the Ole Miss quarterback, slipping past his half-hearted attempt at a tackle and cruising into the end zone for a tone-setting touchdown. A native of Mansfield, Texas, Catalon returned his first career interception for a 35-yard score that put the Razorbacks up 17-0 over the Rebels early in the second quarter Saturday. For Corral, who entered Week 4 with only one pick to his name, it was his second interception in as many attempts. "We were just in a zone coverage, just reading the quarterback and he rolled out and I read his eyes," Catalon said Tuesday, recalling the sequence. "I just broke on the ball and made the play and had my eyes on the end zone and took it home from there. It was a great feeling.

"I credit my D-line because without them all the interceptions that happened that day wouldn't have happened, so credit to those guys and everybody else who did their job. I just happened to be in the right place at the right time. I made the play." Catalon made the play because that is what he knows to do. Razorbacks linebacker Grant Morgan labeled the safety a technician. "Linebackers have a joke about him," Morgan noted. "We call him Ironman because we always know he's going to be able to make us right if we mess up. Just be able to have that at that time of the game just shows that no matter what happened we were able to capitalize on their mistakes and we were just able to play our defense. "We kept saying the whole game who is going to be the guy to make the play? Who is going to be the guy that does their job so good that it ends up making the difference in the game?" - Northwest Arkansas Times
