It seems that Walter Camp devised to scoring systems in 1883. One lists MM's answer correct, the other lists ktffan's answer as correct. I'm going to have to do some real research to see which one is right.

CFP's history of CFB lists Mountainman's answer right as well. I am sure the answer is out there, I just have to find it. I get back on this question a little later.

Touchdown 4 points; field goal 5 points;
extra points 4 points

Safety 1 point

What confuses me is that there is scoring listed for the 1882 season:

Touchdown 2 points; field goal 5 points; extra
points 4 points; Safety 1 point

Walter Camp devised both systems. The one in 1882 was deemed to complicated. :? so he changed it in 1883. Your second answer is right and I'm quitting the topic right here. There is a lot of confusion on this topic even from the historical people.

If it is an attempted field goal it counts as 1, I am not sure but I think it counts as one on a two point conversion as well.

Now, I haven't really seen this happen, but I've seen it almost happen. I just want to know for myself.

On a PAT or 2 Point attempt, if there is fumble or interception returned all the way to the opposite endzone, how much is it worth?

I have heard both 2 and 1

Is it one if it's a PAT attempt and two if it's a 2 pt conversion attempt?

Or is it a standard 1 or 2?


During an extra point attempt, touchdowns are worth 2, field goals are worth one and safeties are worth 1. So a turnover returned the distance goes for 2.

I believe that on a PAT attempt if the kick is blocked and returned by the defense to the opponents endzone it's worth 2 points .... as is an intercepted pass on a PAT attempt .... as is a fumble, provided the fumble is recovered in the field of play.

Might want to verify that though ..... :?

P.S. I'm a little confused with field goal worth 1, help me out here. :?
