FAYETTEVILLE, Arkansas – In a wild back-and-forth game in SEC country, the BYU Cougars have fought back yet again in the third quarter.
BYU botches fake field goal against Arkansas
Arkansas elected to go for it on fourth down near midfield midway through the third quarter.
It was a power run attempt that was stuffed by the Cougar defense.
Jackson Cravens blew up the play at the line of scrimmage and AJ Vongphachanh finished off Rashod Dubinion for a turnover.
Kedon Slovis and the BYU offense moved into scoring territory before a third-down sack forced a field goal attempt.
Instead of a field goal, the holder Ryan Rehkow kept the ball and attempted to pick up the first down with his legs.
He was stopped short.
However, the play was after the play clock expired.
Greatest delay of game penalty ever for #BYU?

It was a lucky break for BYU who decided to kick the field goal.
Will Ferrin connected on a 43-yard field goal to bring the Arkansas lead down to seven points.
