Yappi will become famous soon enough
Since this just happened at the end of a college football game:

The situation:

4th and 6 from the 8 yard line. Trailing by 7 in the first overtime. Second team with possession (ie bottom of the 1st OT)

QB drops back to pass. Fumbles the ball. Defense picks it up and runs a couple of yards. Runner gets stripped of the ball and the offense recovers the ball. (In college, the game was over.)

So my question has two parts:

In HS, would the game still be over? (I'm assuming it would)
In HS, would the ruling change if it was only 3rd down?

Not real confident but it seems like as soon as the defense takes possession, that series is over. No returns allowed in HS. Is that correct?

You are correct, as soon as the defense possesses the ball, the offensive possession ends.

As soon as the defense gains possession of the ball, the ball is dead and the offensive series has ended, regardless of the down.

Did Dallas miss a chance to win the game…..

Green Bay vs Dallas.

With 3 seconds left in 2nd quarter. Green Bay punt the ball to Dallas.
The punt goes to about Dallas 40. IF Dallas would have fair caught the ball ,
Could Dallas “free kick: back to Green Bay with possible of scoring a Field goal ?

Yes they could.

Have no idea why they passed on the opportunity.

Was that a SAFTEY during the Green Bay vs Atlanta ???

During the first half Green Bay fumble the ball

This was reviewed (as all turnovers and scoring plays are) and it was determined that the ball was not possessed until he was in the end zone.
