    Yeah... it's only happened like 4 or 5 times in history.

    How rare was that 1 point safety?

    @darrenrovell: Wynn bookmaker Johnny Avello just told me if he were to post a 1-point safety prop, he'd put it at 50,000 to 1.
    I remember my first game as a child and the amazing feeling I got when I first walked into Bryant-Denny. I still get that same feeling every single game.

    Same here - didn't even know it was possible, but it makes sense.

    I don't think the lateral is really relevant though. IIRC, the KSU player who recovered the block in the field of play had already retreated back into the endzone. If he had been tackled in the endzone before he lateraled, it would have still been a safety.

    Do college teams have to annouce whether they're going for 1 or 2 points? I wonder if it would have been a 2 point safety if Oregon had fumbled during a 2 point conversion and a KSU player recovered the ball in the field of play and was tackled after he retreated into the endzone.

    A safety on a conversion, whether it's a kick or a 2 point, will result in 1 point... unless it's the team doing the conversion and somehow they get tackled in their own endzone... which would be a next to impossible scenario (Outside of saying the ball getting snapped too high and somehow going the length of the field into the other endzone).

    I've never seen or heard of it in 50+ years. Brad Nessler commented he had now covered two games where it occurred, but he didn't indicate what the earlier game was.

    Think he mentioned a Texas/Texas A&M game. Not sure the year, though.

    Re: 1 point safety in the Fiesta Bowl last night?

    Learn something new everyday... A defensive safety on a conversion is the only possible way for a team to have a score of 1 in football. However, a defensive safety has not ever occurred in modern football.
    So, if Oregon was kicking the extra point, and the snap went over the holder's head, the kicker ran backward to pick up the ball, but is chased backwards by defenders until he is tackled in his own end zone, that would be a defensive safety on a conversion.

    That's the first time that I've ever seen that call. Looks like the officials were well aware of the rule even though it happens only every blue moon.

    It was in 2004: LINK Our old friend Coach Fran was involved.

    Re: 1 point safety in the Fiesta Bowl last night?

    Is it possible for a score to ever be 1-0 at any point in a game?

    No because a team has to score for the other team to get the 1 point safety.
