GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) - Fifth-ranked Oregon was awarded a 1-point safety on an obscure rule against No. 7 Kansas State in the Fiesta Bowl on Thursday night.

Oregon quarterback Marcus Mariota scored on a 2-yard run midway through the third quarter and the Ducks sent kicker Alejandro Maldonado out to kick the extra point.

Kansas State's Javonta Boyd blocked the kick and the ball ended up in the hands of teammate Chris Harper, who was tackled in the end zone.

After a review of the play, the officials awarded the Ducks a 1-point safety that put them up 32-10.
