College Football OT Question?

Let’s say team A has it (they have the ball first) they fumble it to team B and team B fumbles it and it rolls out the back of their own end zone. Is this a safety and team A wins?

    The college OT is retarded. You might as well flip a coin

    Overtime consists of series with each team getting to put the ball in play by a snap in each series. If your scenario would happen, safety. Team A is up 2-0. 


    Team B still gets a possession to put to the ball in play by a snap at the 25. Whatever Team B  does in the possession determines the outcome of the game, unless your scenario, VERY unlikely, is reversed. If that would happen a new series would start with the score tied 2-2.
