Default UT / A&M 1-point safety?????

I like to think that I've seen or heard of nearly every scoring scenario. If someone had told me that a 1-point safety existed, I would've told them they were nuts. My only consolation is that the announcing team was just as baffled as I was!

i dont get it either, first of all he kicked the ball so isnt it dead. then even if A&M had the ball and fumbled it again they lose either way if texas gets it in the endzone it is a two point conversion and if A&M gets it its a one point conversion for Texas again so either way Texas is going to get points. that is what doesnt make sense to me.

The problem is that the play should've been blown dead when it hit the offensive line. But the rest of it makes sense. Go back to Leon Lett in the snow. If your team is defending a field goal or extra point, you never touch that ball unless there is no one around you and you can clearly have a shot at a return. If A&M picks it up and fumbles it back in the end zone, they deserve for it to be a bad result, just like it would if it were a normal play and they fumbled back. That said, I still don't understand it because I thought the play would be dead when it hit the OL.

That is what the aggies did, they picked it up and ran with it. The player was on about the 2 yard line when he fumbled the ball into the end zone.
If Texas had recovered, I am not sure it would have been two points.

Been watching football for 40 some years and this is a first. I too think the ball is dead, but the Lett thing is a good point.

It should have never been because that rule only applies on a two point try which the play wasnt. Like said before, once it was dead and hit the lineman the play was dead.

They stated later that it became a "a two point try" for the Aggies when they picked up the ball and begin running the other way. It seems if the call was incorrect coach Fran would have argued some.
