The College Football Rules Committee makes sweeping changes in an attempt to inject more offense into the game. Most importantly, the playing field is reduced from 110 yards to 100 yards. The point value of a touchdown increases from five to six. The number of downs needed to gain 10 yards increases from three to four. Kickoffs are now made from a team’s own 40-yard line instead of midfield, previously the 55-yard line on the 110-yard field. The forward pass is allowed anywhere on the field. Previously, a pass could not be caught more than 20 yards beyond the line of scrimmage. Also, passes can now be caught in the end zone for the first time.
