Hello Football Fans,
The next three weeks of the regular season and the conference championship games will determine which teams get into the college football playoffs. It's still early, but a lot happened last weekend. And the Hawkeyes are CFP#5 (for now).

Arkansas (+10h) had a chance to upset host AP#19 Mississippi on the last play of regulation with the score tied 45-45. The Razorbacks tried a 47-yard FG but it was blocked, sending the game into overtime. Ole Miss started the first OT period with a TD and extra point to lead by 7. The ARK Hogs started their OT opportunity from the 25-yard line, but a penalty and sack and incompletion had them facing 4th-and-25 from the 40-yard line (needing to get to the 15-yard line just to get a “1st down” and keep faint hopes alive). A pass to the sidelines was caught at the 25-yard line, but the defender was right there and started to tackle the receiver. The Razorback receiver flung the ball over his shoulder into the middle of the field, about 10-15 yards behind him. The ball was tipped, bounced once and an Arkansas player picked it up and ran it to the 11-yard line – FIRST DOWN. After that miraculous play, the Hogs scored a TD and still had a chance to win, behind 51-52. Instead of tying the game with a PAT kick, HC Bret Bielema decided to “go for two” and the win from the 3-yard line. Another pass play…QB is sacked…game over?...NO, penalty for grabbing the QB’s face mask on the sack. Arkansas got another chance, this time from the 1½ yard line (half the distance to the goal). A quarterback keeper up the middle was good, and the upset was complete.
