The NCAA rules committee has released proposals for some rules changes mostly designed to increase safety and the pace of play.
Among the changes: all facemask penalties will be 15-yards, eliminating the five-year incidental rule; out-of-bounds kickoffs may be taken at the 40 instead of the 35; all fumbles may be reviewed; and the horse-collar tackle will be outlawed.
As the release notes, none of these are official yet until reviewed by the general membership and the
Playing Rules Oversight Panel.
