  Draft Scout by Conference

  11/07/21 - QB KJ JeffersonrJr/2024, Arkansas

  Arkansas' 31-28 win over Mississippi State on Saturday was not, as coach Sam Pittman said, the Super Bowl. But for a team two years removed from back-to-back 2-10 seasons, the worst two records of Razorbacks football since World War II, becoming bowl-eligible, in the fashion they did, was high on Pittman's wishlist. After Dominique Johnson scored the go-ahead touchdown with 21 seconds left and Mississippi State missed a potential game-tying field goal from 40 yards with two seconds remaining, Arkansas players and staff blitzed the field in cathartic glee. Trailing 28-23 with one minute left, Arkansas (6-3, 2-3 in SEC) appeared to have lost when KJ Jefferson's pass into the flat on fourth down from the Mississippi State 25 fell incomplete. But the Bulldogs were called for holding, Arkansas moved up to the 15 and two plays later, Johnson scored on a 4-yard run.

The touchdown came just 2:01 after Mississippi State (5-4, 3-3) had taken the lead on a 15-yard pass from Will Rogers to Jo'quavious Marks. Rogers with 417 yards and four touchdowns, completed three straight passes to move the Bulldogs from their own 25 to the Arkansas 22 and set up the final field-goal attempt. Nolan McCord, who replaced Brandon Ruiz after Ruiz missed two earlier in the game, including a 22-yarder, sent his kick wide left. "We didn't just win the Super Bowl but it feels like it," Pittman said. "Very, very excited to know we're going to play in December or January." The win made Arkansas (6-3, 2-3) bowl-eligible, under non-COVID qualifications, for the first time since 2016 and gave the Razorbacks their second win this season over a team ranked inside the College Football Playoff top 25. Arkansas began the year 4-0, including a victory over No. 14 Texas A&M, before three straight SEC losses followed. Rogers twice brought the fear of a fourth straight Arkansas loss. - Arkansas/AP College Football
