In a match up that saw a combined 900 yards of offense, seven touchdown passes and six turnovers, it was only fitting for the game to be decided in the final moments. With only eight seconds remaining, Alabama quarterback John Parker Wilson hit wide receiver Matt Caddell with a 4-yard touchdown pass to put the Tide up 41-38 over Arkansas. Alabama’s fourth touchdown pass of the day was the game winner and earned them a Pontiac Game Changing Performance.

Bama fans voted at and decided that this play was one of this season’s top game-changing performances with the greatest impact on the game, while helping your school earn a $5,000 scholarship contribution from Pontiac.
