Proposed 10-Second Rule Going Before NCAA Committee

Proposal Could Go Before Playing Rules Oversight Committee on Thursday.

NEW YORK (AP) -- A proposed rule change that would penalize college football offenses for snapping the ball before 10 seconds had run off the 40-second play clock is scheduled to be reviewed one last time by an NCAA committee on Wednesday.

The conference call by the football rules committee is a routine step in the process, but also the last opportunity for the proposal to be withdrawn before it goes to the playing rules oversight panel on Thursday.

If the panel approves the proposal, the rule would go into effect next season.

The proposed change was made to address player-safety concerns held by some coaches who say hurry up, no-huddle offenses that increase the number of plays in games and limit defensive substitutions put players at greater risk for injuries.
