So today after we got the safety today to make it 30-14, bowling green proceeded to kickoff from their own 20 I think. however, I thought (or should I say ncaa football 05 taught me) that after a safety the kicking team had to punt it away. i looked on wikipedia and got this
Resuming play after a safety The various rules books prescribe different methods for resuming play after a safety. In the NFL, the team that gave up the points kicks to the other team from its own 20-yard line. This is termed a free kick: the kicking team has the option of employing a punt or a drop kick. Unlike the kickoff, a kicking tee may not be used (NFL only, college kickers have the option of using a tee on the safety kick). A punt is the most commonly chosen option, whereas a drop kick is virtually unheard-of in modern football.so it looks like it says you can punt or drop kick it. why then did bowling green kickoff normally?
