    rule change

    New 1st-down clock rule

    There's a substantial rule change debuting this year as the NCAA makes an effort to shorten the length of games. For the first time since 1967, the clock will run after a first down instead of stopping while the chains reset. The exception to the rule is during the final two minutes of both halves. The rule change could play a large role in curbing comeback potential, with limited clock stoppage shortening the number of possessions.

    For once a rule change I actually agree with.

    But, as you can see, it's not a rule change, it's a rule reversion to 1967.
