Here was the situation...3rd and 8 from the 13 yard line. After the play there was a personal foul on the defense. So the penalty was stepped off half the distance to the goal. This took the ball to the 7. Should it have been 1 and 10 (automatic first down) or 4th and 2?

I believe TXMike spoke for those using NCAA rules.

For NFHS, personal fouls are NOT automatic 1st downs. Should be 4th and 2.

High school games in Texas and Mass. use NCAA rules, so Mike is right if you are in one of those states, otherwise, go with the Fed gurus.

Texas and Mass. are the ONLY states that use NCAA rules (with exceptions, at least for Tx).

Unless someone recently changed. Everyone else uses Federation rules.
