Arkansas Field Goal Denied by NFL Upright in Loss to Texas A&M

Did playing in an NFL stadium cost the Arkansas Razorbacks a victory over Texas A&M Saturday night? It’s open to conjecture.

Cam Little’s 42-yard field goal attempt with 90 seconds remaining in the Dallas Cowboys’ AT&T Stadium hit the very top of the right upright and fell to the ground short, preventing the No. 10 Razorbacks from taking a 24–23 lead over the Aggies. After the miss, A&M ran out the clock for a 23–21 victory that knocked Arkansas from the unbeaten ranks.

If the game had been played on campus in Fayetteville or College Station, that might have gone differently.
