CFB discussing multiple rule changes to shorten games, prevent injuries

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.
