ATM Arkansas2

On the first play of the fourth quarter, Arkansas appeared to be two yards away from the goal line, and two yards away from putting No. 6 Texas A&M away for good. The Hogs led 28-14 and had every morsel of the momentum available inside AT&T Stadium. But Jonathan Williams’ run was called back for tripping, and Arkansas had to punt. Texas A&M got the ball back, and two plays later it was 28-21.

Kenny Hill threw an interception and the offense went three-and-out on A&M’s next two possessions, but the defense did its job. The Aggies’ fourth possession of the fourth quarter turned into its second two-play touchdown drive, and now the game they were nearly out of was suddenly tied.

The game went to overtime, where Texas A&M opened by scoring on the first play, and followed that up by stuffing Arkansas on the decisive 4th-and-2.

The sideline was – how do you say this? – excited.

Texas A&M, as it has always done since the arrival of Kevin Sumlin, did an outstanding job of capturing the moment and transmitting it on social media quickly thereafter. Every program in America should be doing this.
