    what happens when...

    in overtime in college football the

    -team 'A' is on offense and fumbles the football
    -defensive team 'B' recovers and runs it to the team A's 2 yard line where they are caught and subsequently fumble
    -team A recovers the fumbled ball on the two.

    do they now have to drive the length of the field for their posession?

    similarly what would happen if team B fumbles on the two and it goes out of the back of the endzone of team A. is that still a touchback then or does team A simply lose possession?

    I'm pretty sure they blow the play dead when theres a turnover in overtime, but i could be wrong. And they get a chance to drive from there twenty.

    nope, remember when we could have beat mizzou but threw a pic in OT and the guy took it back about 50 yards before we tackled him?

    Re: what happens when...

    I would assume as soon as soon as the second turnover occurs the play would be over and the team that intercepted would get possession at the 25. Just a guess, no clue really.

    No... It's still a live ball.

    To the OP, yes, the original team would have to drive the entire field in the other 3 downs.

    That's my guess. That's probably why college players are taught to just go down if they get a turnover in OT.

    I think that would just be the end of B's possession.

    Overtime (sports) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    You can score a TD on Defense, but it seems anything short of a TD results in the end of possession for the offense

    Wouldn't it be a new set of downs? 1st & 10 from the 20 (or wherever) since it's a change of possession?

    but on a change of possession, the other team gets a new set of downs do they not?

    That's what I would think, it's not like the snap went way over his head and was recovered at the twenty.
