Dead Ball Foul prior to Overtime

Can someone clarify the following overtime scenario for me.
The following was a test question on the MHSAA Web site, It gives the correct answer as D-None of the above, but my original answer was B.
Your thoughts?

The game is tied and on the last play of the 4th quarter, defender B50 is flagged for a late hit. Team A wins the toss in overtime and elects to go on defense first. Team B will begin overtime….
a. 1st and 10 from the 10 yard line; fouls can never carry over from regulation to overtime.
b. 1st and 10 from the 25 yard line; dead ball fouls can carry over from regulation to overtime.
c. The officials made an error; Team A should have been given one untimed down in regulation due to Team B’s foul.
d. None of the above.

If your state uses the NF overtime procedures, then the correct ruling would be 1st and goal from the 25. The NF uses the goal line as the line to gain no matter what. This is why many states use another procedure for overtime.

Peace

Actually, the NF procedure is 1st and goal from the 10. See page 90 of the 2007 rule book.

The answer is D. Penalties can carry over. Again, see page 90.

I see the technicality in the B statement now

b. 1st and 10 from the 25 yard line; dead ball fouls can carry over from regulation to overtime.

should be 1st and goal.

D would be correct

CANADIAN RULING:

Late hits are UR fouls and always carry over.

Team B starts 1D/10 @ the 50 (35 + L15).

Re-Read what he wrote. Then reread what YOU wrote. Then feel free to delete your post (and I'll delete mine) - I know that if you read his post correctly you wouldn't feel the need to correct him.

JR is right. 1st and goal from the 25.
