No. A single point can only be scored after a touchdown (a touchdown being worth 6 points). The lowest non-zero score a team can have is 2. A "safety" (tackling the other team's ball carrier in his own end zone) scores two points.

If a game is forfeited, the non-forfeiting team officially wins 1-0 (at least in College Football).

Though it has never happened, it is possible for a team to score just one point in a college football game (if the offensive team somehow gets tackled in their own endzone for a safety on the PAT, the defensive team would be awarded one point), but the other team has to score at least one touchdown for this to be possible.
