If the free kick fails to reach the restraining line, it may be fielded and advanced by the receiving team, but if it is recovered by the kicking team it becomes dead and the ball is awarded to the receiving team at the point of recovery. A free kick going into the receiving team's end zone may be fielded by the kicking team but it automatically becomes a dead ball and it will be placed 10 yards in front of the goal line in the possession of the receiving team. If a free kick goes out-of-bounds without having been touched by one or more players, possession goes to the last team to have touched the ball where the ball crossed the sideline. </li></ul>

A fair catch is not allowed after the opponent has touched the ball. </li></ul><ul><li>(5) Handling and passing ball - A ball may be passed backward at any time. If it touches the ground behind the goal line it is dead. A ball may be handed forward behind the line of scrimmage.

If the arm of the passer is in forward motion at the time the passer is flag tackled, the passer is not considered down. </li></ul>
  48. 48. … <ul><li>(6) Fumbles - All fumbles make the ball dead where it touched the ground. The ball goes to the team that last had possession at the spot where it touched the ground.

No player will dive in an attempt to flag tackle the runner. </li></ul>
  49. 49. … <ul><li>(8) Interceptions - A ball intercepted may be run back to the end zone for a score.

In such cases the linemen of both offensive and defensive teams will remain off the line of scrimmage until after the punt is made. The punter shall not delay the kick. No player of the kicking team shall touch the ball except to make it dead. </li></ul>
  50. 50. … <ul><li>(10) Penalties - Penalties will be inflicted in accordance with regular rules but the distance will be halved. A team guilty of offensive pass interference will be charged with the loss of a down plus a seven and one half yard penalty. On defensive pass interference the ball becomes the offensive team's at the spot the interference occurred and the down remains the same as before the penalty occurred. </li></ul>
  51. 51. … <ul><li>(11) Ties - Coin toss. The ball is put into play on the 25-yard line with each team being granted four downs, of which all are to be taken alternately from the 25-yard line. Regular scoring by each is permitted as they take their alternate downs until each team exhausts its four downs. In the event of no score or equal scoring in overtime the team accumulating the largest total yardage will be declared the winner. NO YARDAGE WILL BE CREDITED FOR PASS INTERCEPTIONS, BUT ANY PLAYER INTERCEPTING A PASS MAY RUN THE INTERCEPTION BACK FOR A SCORE - if flag tackled shy of a score on an interception runback, no yardage will be credited to their team. </li></ul>
