32 Arkansas Football Sunday, August 26, 2018 and throws the winning two-point conversion pass to Austin Cantrell as the crowd goes wild. Jordan Ta'amu accounts for five touchdowns for the Rebels, but his failed mesh on a handoff in the fourth quarter leads to D'Vone McClure's 32-yard fumble return touchdown to pull Arkan- sas into a tie. The Razorbacks extend their winning streak over Ole Miss to five games. OCT. 20 ARKANSAS 45, TULSA 16 FAYETTEVILLE — A homecoming crowd watches Ty Storey throw for career highs of 301 passing yards and three touchdowns, to Jon- athan Nance, De'Vion Warren and Cheyenne O'Grady. Ryder Lucas returns a blocked punt for a touchdown and takeaways from Briston Guidry, Montaric Brown and Joe Foucha set up other scores. T.J. Hammonds scores on a pitch play and Rakeem Boyd runs for 74 yards and a 13-yard touchdown. OCT. 27 ARKANSAS 26, VANDERBILT 13 FAYETTEVILLE — The Razorbacks run their winning streak to three games and clinch bowl eligibility by holding Vanderbilt to 270 total yards and notching four takeaways. Kevin Richardson and Hayden Henry post inter- ceptions, while Gabe Richardson and T.J. Smith recover fumbles. "I've got to be a better CEO of this team," Van- derbilt Coach Derek Mason says after the Com- modores lose their fourth game in a row. NOV. 10 ARKANSAS 21, LSU 20 FAYETTEVILLE — The Razorbacks win their fourth straight with a dagger against the Tigers, who have the lead and the ball with less than two minutes remaining before a muffed snap leads to disaster. De'Jon Harris rushes in to scoop up the loose ball at midfield and is corralled at the LSU 30 before lateraling to Santos Ramirez, who races in the final 32 yards for the game-winning score. Cole Kelley throws a 25-yard touchdown strike to Jared Cornelius for an early Arkansas lead, and Kendrick Jackson blasts in for a 1-yard touchdown for the Hogs' other score. The Tigers inexplicably go for a two-point con- version early in the fourth quarter after taking a 20-14 lead. "I don't know, JoJo," LSU Coach Ed Orgeron says to explain the conversion decision. NOV. 17 MISSISSIPPI STATE 37, ARKANSAS 33 STARKVILLE, Miss. — Nick Fitzgerald scores on a 1-yard keeper late in the game and the Bulldogs dodge an upset bid on a chilly night at Davis Wade Stadium. The SEC West rivals play yet another tight game in what has turned into an under-rated SEC West rivalry. The Razorbacks take the lead on Maleek Williams' 8-yard score with 2:13 remaining to set the stage for the win- ning drive. Dorian Gerald leads the Hogs with 2.5 sacks. Jonathan Marshall scores on a fumble return, and Deon Stewart, Austin Cantrell and Chase Hayden log the Hogs' offensive scores. NOV. 23 MISSOURI 33, ARKANSAS 28 COLUMBIA, Mo. — Missouri receiver John- athon Johnson shoves Chevin Calloway to the ground, then hauls in a 50-yard pass from Drew Lock and steps across the goal line with seconds remaining to lift the Tigers to the vic- tory. "I learned that from J'Mon Moore," Johnson says of the winning catch, referencing a play in the 2017 game between the teams. Brian Wallace and Armon Watts, high school teammates in St. Louis, both recover fumbles for the Razorbacks, who get touchdowns from Devwah Whaley, Ty Storey, Jonathan Nance and on Dre Greenlaw's fumble return. DEC. 27 LOUISVILLE 41, ARKANSAS 40 SHREVEPORT, La. — SEC and ACC officials cannot avoid the matchup between the Hogs and former Arkansas Coach Bobby Petrino and the drama that unfolds at the Indepen- dence Bowl makes the decision look like a master stroke. The Razorbacks take a late lead at 40-35 on a beautifully designed and perfectly executed hook and lateral play. After hitches to Jared Cornelius, Mike Woods and Tobias Enlow get Arkansas to midfield, Ty Storey hits Jeremy Patton over the middle at the Louisville 30. Patton immediately pitches to a streaking Jordan Jones for the shocker touchdown with 27 seconds left. But Petrino has a trick up his sleeve. A spot pass on the kickoff return gets the Cardinals out to the 50 yard line. Then a throwback half- back pass yields the gamer winner. Morris wraps up a 7-6 debut season by saying the recruiting trail beckons.
