Okay so last night I went to see a local Division 2 college football team and an interesting play took place that was questionable. Here is the scenario, Team A will be the kicking team and Team B the receiving. Team A kicks off after scoring, basically opting for a squib kick since there was only 33 seconds left on the clock. A player from Team B touches the ball with his hands on about the 5 yard line but doesn't dive on it. As a result the ball continues into the end zone where Team B eventually dives on it. The question here is what is supposed to be the call from the refs. Is it a Touchback since the ball was downed in the end zone or is it a safety since Team B did not progress the ball back out of the end zone after having touched it outside of the endzone?
