Timing Rules Quiz

In an effort to get back to talking rules questions:

Play 1: Opening kickoff from the K-40. K1 kicks a surprise onside kick. K1 touches the ball at the K-47 and it rolls to the K-49 where K2 picks the ball up. When does the clock start?

Play 2: With one second left in the first quarter, K1 kicks off from the K-40. K1 kicks a surprise onside kick. K2 touches the ball at the R-47. One second later, K3 possesses the ball at the R-45. When should the clock start?

Play 3: 4/10 from the R-40 with 13 seconds remaining the first quarter. K1 lines up with only six players on the line of scrimmage. K1 punts the ball and R1 catches the punt at the R-5 where he is tackled inbounds. R1 accepts the penalty for the illegal formation foul and the game clock is stopped at 5 seconds remaining. When will the clock start? Are there other considerations?


Play 4: 3/10 from the A-30 with 10 seconds remaining in the first quarter and the clock running. A1 commits a false start foul and B accepts the penalty for the foul. Clock is stopped with 3 seconds. When does the clock start and is there an untimed down?


Play 5: 2/12 from the A-32. A1 throws a pass and is then roughed by B1. A1s pass is intercepted by B2 who runs to the A-25 and he is (a) tackled inbounds (b) goes out of bounds. When will the clock start?


Play 6: Either (a) 4/4 or (b) 4/9 at the 50 with 32 seconds remaining in the 4th quarter and team K leading by 2 points. K1 punts the ball and R1 is flagged for running into the kicker. The punt is caught at the R-20 and R2 is downed inbounds at the R-23. When the clock is stopped, there are 25 seconds remaining in the 4th quarter. What options and clock information should be offered to K?


Play 7: 10 seconds remaining in the 3rd quarter, As ball 1/10. A1 runs the B-5 and the game official accidentally sounds an inadvertent whistle thinking he has crossed the goal line. Time expires during the down and before the whistle.
