The One-Point Safety

For those of you who didn't watch the Fiesta Bowl, this happened:



Here's the rule:

Quote:
"On a try attempt… a Team A fumble that is recovered in the Team B end zone by Team B. RULING: Safety, award Team A one point (Rules 8-3-1 and 8-5-1)."
That's really all I've got. I've just never heard of such a thing, and it's kind of fascinating. Here's a more thorough discussion:

I found this part pretty crazy as well

And yes, this has happened before, during a 2004 game between Texas and Texas A&M. After returning a blocked punt for a touchdown, Texas had its point-after try blocked by the Aggies. A&M then went through the same rigmarole as Kansas State, giving the Longhorns the one-point safety.

What's really amazing: ESPN's Brad Nessler called that game in 2004 and Thursday's Fiesta Bowl. What are the odds?

I knew the rule because of the Texas-Aggie game a few years back.

Trivia: That was Derrick Johnson's last regular season game as a Longhorn. (Then they played in the Rose Bowl and beat my Wolverines by 1 point)

It is a very odd rule. How does a safety equal 1 point? How does K-State not have to free kick after said safety? I think it should be called something other than a safety.

Because it came on a one point play after a touchdown had been scored earlier? In college they would also get 2 pts if the defense returned a 2point try.

It is just rare.

Which is why the safety happened in the first place.

i assume this is an NCAA only rule? I've been watching NFL games for 35 years now and can't ever recall a 1pt safety. Seems like kind of a stupid rule...
