Vanderbilt kicker Sarah Fuller has made history. On Saturday, when she kicked off for the Commodores in the second half of their game against Missouri, she became the first woman to play in a Power 5 football game.

Vanderbilt had a grad transfer kicker opt out before the season, and this week several of its specialists had to go into quarantine due to COVID-19 testing. Fuller, a goalkeeper for Vanderbilt's SEC champion soccer team, tried out this week.

Jacksonville State's Ashley Martin, in 2001, became the first woman to score in a Division I college football game when she made three extra points. New Mexico's Katie Hnida, in 2003, became the first woman to score at the FBS level.

When Fuller made her first kick, the sports world was there to congratulate her.
