Vanderbilt’s Sarah Fuller powered her way into the history books on Saturday afternoon as she sent a football end over end through the uprights on an extra-point try.

In the process, Fuller became the first woman to score a point in Power Five history, tying the Commodores with the Tennessee Volunteers in the game’s first half.

Fuller has been on the Commodores’ active roster for two weeks, but only saw the field to hit a squib kick to open the game’s second half against Missouri on Dec. 5, as the Commodores were shutout by the Tigers, 41-0.

The senior played a key role in the Commodores’ SEC championship in women’s soccer this fall, as the team’s starting goalkeeper.

She joins a short list of women that have made a kick in a college football game, joining former University of New Mexico kicker Katie Hnida as the only female players to do so in the FBS.
