ESPN Classic to Air Ole Miss OT Thriller

Arkansas' 58-56 seven-overtime victory at Ole Miss Saturday has been dubbed an instant classic by ESPN.

ESPN is airing a replay of the game Friday at 8 p.m. on ESPN Classics.

The seven overtimes is the most played in any division in NCAA history.

The game was tied 17-17 at the end of regulation, but the two teams combined for 80 points in the extra periods. Matt Jones' two-point conversion completion to Decori Birmingham was the difference following Mark Pierce's two-yard touchdown run.

Ole Miss answered with a touchdown, but linebacker Jermaine Petty stopped tight end Doug Zeigler at the two on the two-point conversion attempt to secure the victory.
