The NCAA rules on why Texas didn’t kick final extra point against Oklahoma
Seattle quarterback Russell Wilson lofted a pass into the end zone as the final seconds expired in the Seahawk’s Week 3 NFL game against the Green Bay Packers.
The Hail Mary was much like the one Texas’ quarterback Case McCoy slung downfield during the 107th annual Red River Rivalry on Saturday at the Cotton Bowl.
But there’s a difference in what happened next.
In the NFL game, the field was flooded with players, media and absolute confusion. The Packers ran to their locker room before a final point was ever kicked, but eventually came back out on the field to line up in formation for the point after attempt due to the NFL rules.
In the OU-Texas game, the officials blew a whistle, said that the game ended after the touchdown and the point after would not be attempted.
According to the NCAA’s rules, if a touchdown is scored as time expires, the period can be extended for a try except if it happens in the fourth period and the points would not affect the outcome of the game.
