But, in this situation... is it?
Here is a link to our mechanic book:

Page 29 sets OT procedures

3. Definition: An OT Period is defined as the Home Team (HT) &Visiting Team (VT) each having a series.

10. COP: If B gains possession, ball is dead immediately. As series has ended.

11. Scoring: A team may score by TD, FG, & Try ONLY. If A scores a TD, then do the Try, unless points would not affect the game outcome. Team with the most points at the end of an OT Period wins. Final score: Combine points scored in regulation & all OT Periods.
