Razorbacks pulled out a come-from-behind victory over a non-conference foe, this time it was an 18-point comeback against Louisiana-Monroe.

The Hogs marched 8 plays to a 4th-and-1 situation at the ULM 32-yard line with just over 2 minutes to play, down by 6 - timeout Razorbacks. With the 55,048 in the stadium expecting a handoff to Michael Smith or a QB sneak behind All-American center Jonathan Luigs, the call on the field was the "Cowboy-Get It Pass." "Cowboy" is in reference to the personnel and formation, "get it pass" is what true freshman receiver Chris Gragg did when he pulled down a 25-yard pass over the shoulder from quarterback Casey Dick off a play-action fake. It was an incredibly gutsy call by the Razorback coaching staff, and it was a play that was not necessarily open, but two plays later Dick found tight end D.J. Williams in the end zone for an 8-yard touchdown. Shay Haddock's extra point put the Hogs ahead 28-27 with 1:22 remaining in the game. Come inside for the complete recap.
