Ole Miss vs. Arkansas is weird.

College football fans are still trying to figure out one call from today's SEC contest between Ole Miss and Arkansas.

With the Rebels clinging to a 34-28 lead early in the fourth quarter, Razorbacks quarterback Cole Kelley was sacked near midfield and coughed the ball up. After a couple of failed attempts by both teams to recover the fumble, Ole Miss was awarded the ball by the refs.

But after watching the replay, it doesn't look like an Ole Miss player ever recovers the ball. DeMarquis Gates is given credit for the recovery, but he never seems to come up with the ball.

If anything, Arkansas recovers it at the end. Check it out:

Ole Miss was awarded the ball and kicked a field goal to end its drive. It's now 37-28 midway through the fourth.
