    Extra Point/field goal clarification

    If an extra point or field goal attempt goes between the uprights above the top of the goal post does it count? Can someone give me a website where this is explained?
    Thanks

    It was my understanding that the ball went over the right hand side of the post, therefore no good.

    It doesn't count because if the kick were moved down it would have hit the goal post.

    The posts are assumed be infinitely tall. If a ball would have hit a theoretical infinitely tall post, it is assumed that the ball would have bounced back and would be no good ,therefore a ball that goes directly above the post is ruled to be no good.

    for extra clarification... in NCAA and high school, they use the inside of the posts... in NFL, they use the outside edge of the post to determine if the kick is good or not

    NFHS & NCAA: The ENTIRE ball must pass to the inside of the INSIDE edge of the upright extended indefinately above the upright.

    NFL: The ENTIRE ball must pass to the inside of the OUTSIDE edge of the upright extended indefinately above the upright.

    If the ball goes over the top of the goal post and one team wants to have the kick reviewed, they may. The teams send their OC and DC, respectively into the replay booth. The team being challenged may defer to the video evidence or use the Chewbacca defense.
