If you were wondering what a one-point safety looks like—and clearly you were—you found out when Oregon and Kansas State met in the Fiesta Bowl on Thursday night. Yes, this is indeed a real thing.
To those wondering: there have only been four 1-point safeties in NCAA history. So that was rare.

Kansas State blocked the Oregon extra point, K-State brought the ball out of the end zone, and the ball was eventually downed back in the end zone. Strange? Yes, indeed. In fact, the strange explanation seems fitting for a play we don’t see often. This is first one we’ve seen since 2004, where Texas and Texas A&M got in on the one-point action.
I’m sure you’ll be talking about this play for many years, or at least a few hours.
