Default Didn't realize this is a rule about spiking the ball.

UT Spiked the ball with 3 seconds left at the end of the game, but doesn't the new rules this year state the 10 second runoff?

Edit.
disregard, this rule was changed to 3 seconds. Oh well lol can the thread be deleted?


The ten-second runoff rule[edit]




In the NFL and NCAA, a 10-second runoff is assessed if any of the following acts are committed by the offense in the last minute of either half:
  1. A foul by either team that prevents the ball from being snapped
  2. Intentional grounding
  3. Illegal forward pass beyond the line of scrimmage
  4. Throwing a backwards pass out of bounds
  5. Spiking or throwing the ball away after a down (unless after a touchdown)
  6. Any other intentional act that causes the clock to stop
The 10-second penalty does not apply if:
  1. The clock is stopped when the ball is set for play and will not start until the ball is snapped.
  2. If the team on offense has timeouts and elects to use one in lieu of the runoff.
  3. If the defense declines the runoff (which prevents the offense from committing fouls to intentionally run out the clock). Note that the team on defense may elect to decline the runoff while accepting the yardage penalty, but may not do the reverse.

Default Re: Didn't realize this is a rule about spiking the ball.

I think that applies only after the down. You're still allowed to spike the ball to kill the clock. (The highlighted question seem to apply to a delay of game, like kicking the ball after the play is over. Anything that slows the game down or makes the refs run to the ball).


They did add a rule that says you cannot spike the ball inside of 3 seconds, but I think that rule is a bit loose in its enforcement (I.E - I dont think the officials will really call it unless there's something weird in the game that necessitates it. Like maybe... if they were lining up for a fieldgoal, there was a bad snap, and the holder spiked the ball before the linemen got there).

The announcer said this during the game as it happened - he said it was two seconds.

Default Re: Didn't realize this is a rule about spiking the ball.

no, its not totally clear but i believe they mean some kind of post play act, spiking the ball after a successful play or spiking/throwing the ball away in an attempt to get the officials to stop the clock to retrieve the ball.
