On fourth down with nine second left on its own 44-yard line, Compton sprinted backward 44 yards to run out the back of the end zone for a safety with two seconds remaining. After a fair catch on the kickoff, a 68-yard pass play with several laterals ended on the Douglass 31-yard line as time expired.
