Best Answer

If a team attempts a two point conversion after scoring a touchdown and the ball is fumbled and recovered by the defense or if a pass is intercepted by the defense who then run the ball back to the other end zone the defense team will be credited with the two points. This is called a defensive conversion.

Note that this rule only applies in College Football. In the NFL, the defense can't score on a point-after attempt.

When is a touchdown scored in football?

A touchdown is scored in football when a player carries the ball over the opposing players' goal line, or if he catches a pass in the end zone. Another way to score a touchdown is if the offensive team has its back close to the end zone and the quarterback has to step into the end zone to make his play and there is a fumble. If the defensive team recovers they score a touchdown.


What is a TD in football?

A "TD" in football is a "touchdown" and is worth 6 points. Following a TD, a team has an opportunity to score a "PAT," or point after touchdown. This can be a kick for one point, or a run for two points.


If the ball is intercepted on an extra point can you score a touchdown?

You cannot score a touchdown if you intercept an extra point. If you return it for a touchdown (all the way to the other team's end zone) you get two points. This is only for college level football. Professional football and High School football immediately blows the whistle and the play is dead when an extra point kick attempt is blocked.
