  2. 2. Rules & Regulations
  3. 3. The Game Format  Football is a timed sport.  The team with the most points at the end of the time period, wins the game.  The game is divided up into 4 periods or quarters with a long "half time" between the second and third quarter.  If a game is tied at the end of regulation, a 15-minute overtime period will be played. Possession is determined before the period begins by a coin toss.
  4. 4. The Rules  The rules in football allow each team to have eleven players on the field at a time. Teams may substitute players between plays with no restrictions.  The defensive players may take any position they want and can move about their side of the football prior to the play without restriction.  The offensive players, however, have several rules that define their position and what role they may take in the offense.  Seven offensive players must be lined up on the line of scrimmage. The other four players must be lined up at least one yard behind the line of scrimmage.
  5. 5. The Football Play  The team with the possession of the football is called the offense.  The defense tries to prevent the offense from scoring or advancing the football.  If the offense does not get 10 yards in four plays, the other team gains possession of the football at the current line of scrimmage.  The football play is over when: 1) the player with the football is tackled or goes out of bounds 2) an incomplete pass 3) there is a score.  The offensive team can lose possession of the football by:  Not getting 10 yards in four downs.  Fumbling or dropping the football and the defensive team recovers it.  Throwing the football to a defensive player for an interception.  Punting or kicking the football to the defensive team.  Missing a field goal.  Getting tackled in the end zone for a safety.
  6. 6. Ways of Playing  THE KICKOFF - A game starts with the kickoff.  FIRST DOWN - All progress in a football game is measured in yards. The offensive team tries to get as much "yardage" as it can to try and move closer to the opponent's end zone. If the offensive team successfully moves the ball 10 or more yards, it earns a first down.  MOVING THE BALL - 1. The first way is called a run. This occurs when the quarterback hands the ball off to a running back, who then tries to gain as many yards as possible by eluding defensive players. 2. The other alternative to running the ball is to throw it. Or as they say in football, pass it! If the ball hits the ground before someone catches it, it is called an incomplete pass. 3. The defense prevents the offense from advancing the ball by bringing the ball carrier to the ground.
  7. 7. Football Penalties 1.False Start: When a football player on the offense moves just prior to the snap. This is a five yard penalty. 2.Offside: If a player from the offense or defense is on the wrong side of the line of scrimmage at the time of the snap. 3.Holding: When a player grabs a football player without the ball with the hands or hooks him or tackles him. 4.Pass Interference: When a defender contacts a pass receiver after the ball is in the air to prevent him from catching the ball. This is up to the referee to determine.
  8. 8. Football Penalties 5.Facemask: To protect the football players, it is illegal to grab another player's facemask. 6.Roughing the Passer or Kicker: Players are not allowed to run into them after the ball has been thrown or kicked. 7.Intentional Grounding: When the passer throws a pass nowhere near an eligible receiver strictly to avoid being sacked. 8.Ineligible Receiver Downfield: When one of the offensive players that is not an eligible receiver is more than 5 yards downfield from the line of scrimmage during a forward pass.
  9. 9. Scoring Points The objective of the game is to score the most points. There are four ways to score points in football. 1. 1.TOUCHDOWN = 6 POINTS 2. EXTRA POINT and the TWO-POINT 3. FIELD GOAL =3.POINTS 4. SAFETY = 2 POINTS

The game was (and still is, at many schools) all about tradition and the many rivalries between colleges.
