Connor Limpert

CCM mentioned it would have been good from 65…looking at the replay, I can’t disagree. :sunglasses:

Limpert told me he has made a 69-yard kick in Razorback Stadium before. I’m not sure if that was in warmups, with/without pressure, etc., but it is obvious he has a big leg, and he is generally consistent. He has made 32 of 39 field goals in his career. I think he is one of the most underrated players on the team.

I sat on the back row of the press box Saturday, next to a couple of scouts from the Steelers and Jets. When Limpert came out to kick the field goal one of the scouts said, “This is a fake. There is no way he makes this.” I told them I thought he would and was told I was crazy. After he made it I noticed both of them turn to their notebooks. Then as the game went on one of the scouts was using his stopwatch to get a read for how quickly Limpert approaches the ball.

All of that is to say that I bet his name is brought up in some scouting rooms this week.

Who is the 2nd kicker, Bauer or Sackett?

Matthew Phillips, a sophomore, is listed as the second-team kicker.

Yes, Matthew Phillips is the back-up kicker. Reid Bauer is the back-up punter.
