At the conclusion of the game with Kansas, Number 93 of the Jayhawks runs into Lucy well after the field goal attempt. This would draw a roughing the kicker foul. Since this is on the last play of the game, and since on both the college and pros, no game can end on a defensive penalty, the offensive team have been given an extra down.The rule states that the down would occur even if there is no time left on the clock.
