Oregon Ducks Score On One-Point Safety [VIDEO]

A one-point safety?  Really?  Yep, official Ron Cherry made the correct call last night in the Tostitos Fiesta Bowl.  You really need to see this.

It always amazes me how I learn new football rules every single season.  There are so many rulings each year that I’ll say, “Huh.  Really?  I never knew that ever existed.”  This one-point safety in the Tostitos Fiesta Bowl between the Oregon Ducks and Kansas State Wildcats is the perfect example.

Kansas State blocked a field goal attempt by Oregon.  Defensive end Ryan Mueller (#44) recovered the blocked kick and retreated into his own end zone.  He lateraled the football to defensive back Allen Chapman (#3) who was tackled in the end zone.  Because Mueller recovered the football in the field of play and retreated into the end zone on his own, a one-point safety is actually the correct call.  Who knew?

Ron Cherry was also involved in a very memorable call (video below).  He was explaining a personal foul penalty and said that the guilty party was “giving him the business.”  It was a classic explanation.

Oregon won the Tostitos Fiesta Bowl 35-17 against Kansas State.  The game was aired on 104.5 The Team, ESPN Radio.  Don’t forget that we will have coverage of the Cotton Bowl between Texas A&M and Oklahoma this evening at 8:00pm ET as well as the BCS National Championship between Notre Dame and Alabama on Monday at 8:00pm ET.

Brian Noe is the Brand Manager at 104.5 The Team, ESPN Radio in Albany, NY.  Brian also hosts “The Noe Show” weekdays from 1-3 pm ET on WTMM.
