Not able to get to the first-down marker after catching a pass on 4th-and-25, Arkansas tight end Hunter Henry launched a lateral backward to try to keep the game going in overtime Saturday vs. Ole Miss.

Crazily, it worked.

Initially, Henry got as many yards as he could after the catch but wound up roughly 12 yards short. Instead of going down and letting the game end, he sent the ball flying backward in hopes that a teammate would be able to make something happen.

Razorbacks running back Alex Collins came up with the football behind the original line of scrimmage and took off. Somehow, he managed to get all the way to the 11-yard line and pick up the first down to keep Arkansas alive.

The Razorbacks wound up scoring a touchdown and converted on the two-point attempt to steal a 53-52 overtime victory against the Rebels at Vaught-Hemingway Stadium.
