    1 point safety in the Fiesta Bowl last night?

    I saw most of the game last night, but as luck would have it, I wasn't watching when the play occurred that resulted in an unheard of 1 point safety. So, how exactly did Oregon pull that off?

    KSU recovered a blocked extra point in the field of play, but the ball carrier then retreated into the end zone. The ball carrier then lateraled to another KSU player in the end zone and that player was subsequently tackled by Oregon while still in the end zone.

    Kansas State blocked an extra point. When they recovered the ball and tried to advance it, they actually backed up into the endzone and Oregon tackled them there... resulting in the safety.

    Extra point was blocked. Kansas st defender gets ball in inzone. Player try's to run it out of inzone only to get tackled before he does. Counts as 1 point instead of two point safty. Very rare.

    I think the key factor is that the blocked extra point was first recovered in the field of play (not the end zone).

    Agreed... and the lateral back to another player in the endzone.

    So would it have just been a dead ball if recovered in the end zone?

    Yes, I believe that is correct.

    I couldn't understand why Kansas did not have to kick back to Oregon if it was a 'safety'; Is there a special rule about a 1 point safety ? The ref's never explained.

    Yeah... since it's a "conversion safety" and not a regular safety... the kick-off rules are different.

    Just like if a team returns a blocked PAT for 2 points. They still get the ball.
