College football leaders are reportedly discussing four rule changes to help shorten game length,
and prevent injuries, per Sports Illustrated’s Ross Dellenger.
Prohibiting consecutive timeouts
No untimed down at end of the first or third quarter as a result of a defensive penalty
Clock runs after first downs except inside of two minutes remaining in a half
Clocks runs on incompletions once ball is spotted
These changes are being evaluated by a group put in place by the College Football Officials (CFO) Board of Managers,
a 12-member team made up of the 10 Football Bowl Subdivision commissioners and two Football Championship Subdivision commissioners.
The report states that it will be weeks before a decision is made. If passed, the changes would go in effect in the 2023 season.
