Vanderbilt’s Sarah Fuller was already the first woman to play in a Power 5 college football game. Now, she’s the first woman to score in one.
Fuller, who kicked off once in a loss to Georgia two weeks ago, just converted an extra point against rival Tennessee. The kick tied the score at 7 and came after a Ken Seals-to-Cam Johnson touchdown pass.
Fuller had no issues with the PAT, which set off plenty of celebration from the crowd and her teammates. It was definitely a cool moment.
Have a look.

It has been a long, brutal season for the Vanderbilt Commodores. They are 0-8, head coach Derek Mason was fired on November 29 and the team postponed its game against Georgia last week because it did not have enough available players.
Fuller’s move from being the starting goalkeeper on the Vanderbilt SEC championship women’s soccer team to placekicker for the football team has been one of the lone bright spots.
Hopefully she’ll have some more opportunities to kick this afternoon.
