NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – The Commodores finally did it.

They made it to the red zone, giving Sarah Fuller the opportunity to make more history.

With less than two minutes left in the first quarter, Sarah Fuller nailed the extra point to even the score to 7-7 against Tennessee.

Following her historic extra point, the referee can be seen chasing her down to give her the game ball. Initially she didn’t see him as her team swarmed her with hugs and high-fives.

Fuller added to her historic kick in the fourth quarter when she hit a second extra point. Following the game, Vanderbilt Athletics took the ball from the second made kick and according to the Associated Press, it will be placed in the College Football Hall of Fame.

Two weeks ago, Fuller became the first female to play in a Power 5 football game on the road at Missouri, but wasn’t given the opportunity to attempt a kick as the Commodores offense struggled to get in the red zone. They were eventually shut-out 41-0.
