This Is the Craziest Blocked PAT You Have Ever Seen (Video)
In the NFL, if the kicking team recovers a blocked PAT, they can try to run it into the endzone for a two-point conversion. However, if the defending team recovers, the play is dead immediately.
That’s not the case in college. Under NCAA rules, a blocked PAT can be recovered by the defending team and returned the length of the field for a defensive two-point conversion.
On Saturday, this minor difference in rules led to one of the craziest blocked PAT attempts in football history. In the second quarter of a FCS game between the Sacramento State Hornets and Northern Colorado Bears, Sacramento State scored a touchdown to make it 13-10. However, the PAT attempt by the Hornets’ Brad Cornish was blocked by Northern Colorado, who then recovered the ball and embarked on an epic seven-lateral quest to run the ball all the way back for a rare defensive two-point conversion.
I’m not going to tell you how the play ended, because it’s just too good to spoil. Just watch all the way to the end:
Yep, that’s right. After seven lateral passes and two fumble recoveries during a single play spanning half a minute, the Bears got the ball all the way down to the Hornets’ goal line…where linebacker Dominick Sierra fumbled the ball again while trying to dive across the plane.
You can’t make this sh*t up.
