What to do as a team who’s facing a must-get 4th-and-25 in overtime? Well in Arkansas case, have one of your guys perform an insane lateral.

Desperate times call for desperate measures. We all know this.
Still, it’s crazy to see desperate actions take place right in front of our eyes. It’s especially crazy to see these desperate actions work.
Check out Arkansas tight end Hunter Henry’s version of “crazy action.”
After catching a ball in overtime on a do-or-die 4th-and-25, Henry launched perhaps the most absurd lateral in the history of football (video above). He knew it’d be his team’s only shot at victory, or at least keeping the drive going.
In remarkable fashion, the move worked. Razorbacks RB Alex Collins wound up with the ball and ran for a first down.
The Razorbacks then scored a touchdown and converted on the ensuing two-point attempt to steal a 53-52 overtime victory against the Rebels at Vaught-Hemingway Stadium.
