Sigh...I'll keep doing em anyways, lol.
Game #4 - "Seventh Heaven"
Arkansas 58, Mississippi 56 (7 OT)
2001 - Oxford, MS
In a game called college football's best by CNNSI and ESPN, and also named ESPN's #2 game of 2001 (only behind Game 7 of D'Backs-Yankees), the Razorbacks and Rebels slugged it out in the longest game in college football history. Almost 1000 yds of offense was gained, 9 lead changes, and records were set for most plays in a game, longest game, most OTs in a game, most points scored in a OT by one team (and combined teams), and as mentioned earlier, it was college football's longest ever game.
The stars were Cedric Cobbs, Fred Talley, and Brandon Holmes, in which all 3 RBs had 100+ yd games, DeCori Birmingham and Jason Peters for spectacular 2 pt conversion catches, Mark Pierce for his 3 TD performance and a powerful surge late in the game, and of course Matt Jones, the freshman QB who met Hesiman hype Eli Manning stride for stride, and Jermaine Petty, who made the game winning tackle on 4th and goal, ending the game and setting off mass celebrations in the Natural State.
