AIR FORCE ACADEMY, Colo. - The extra point, one of the most routine plays in football, was anything but at Air Force on Saturday.
At least not until Deric Yaussi lined his up with 1:25 left and kicked it straight through in Wyoming's 29-28 victory over the Falcons.
"Most extra points are easy, pretty much right down the middle," Yaussi said. "Every once in a while, they get a little tricky."
There was trickery and more on the four fourth-quarter extra-point attempts that made the difference for the Mountain West rivals.
Wyoming tied it at 28 and set Yaussi up for the winner after a 65-yard drive highlighted by three completions between Corey Bramlet and Michael Ford and capped by Bramlet's 1-yard dive into the end zone.
It turned into the winning drive because, after Air Force scored a touchdown on the possession before, holder Donny Heaton couldn't handle the snap from Bryan Jones and was tackled near the sideline to keep the score at 28-22.
The Falcons started the extra-point excitement early in the fourth when, after a touchdown that put them ahead by four, DeBerry decided to go for 2 and called a trick play. Shaun Carney lateraled crossfield to offensive lineman Robert Kraay, who jogged in to make it 22-16.
A little later, Wyoming scored a touchdown, but Yaussi's kick failed to clear the line, and the score remained tied at 22.
