Today in …

2002 – Katie Hnida becomes the first woman to play in an NCAA Division I-A college football game – and the third overall – when she attempts an extra point for New Mexico in the Las Vegas Bowl. The point is blocked and the Lobos los to UCLA 27-13. Liz Heaston previously played for Willamette in 1997 in an NAIA Division III contest and Ashley martin played for Division I-AA Jacksonville State in 2001. Both were also placekickers. Hnida goes on to kick two extra points in the fourth quarter of New Mexico's 72-8 win over Texas State on Aug. 30, 2003. She began her college career at Colorado, but never appeared in a game before transferring to New Mexico. In 2006 she'll write a book about her experiences entitled “Still Kicking: My Journey as the First Woman to Play Division One College Football.”
