NEW RULE INTERPRETATION: Rule 5-1-1b Correcting a Down
Rule 5-1-1b gives the Referee the authority to correct a down prior to the ball becoming live after a new series of downs is awarded. Casebook Situation 5.1.1A explains procedures when dealing with an extra down or those involving being shorted a down but fails to speak to penalty enforcement, timing, or change of possession issues that may occur during the improper down. The following will be in effect for the 2015 season related to these areas.

Penalty enforcement if occurring on an improper down: All personal fouls, unsportsmanlike fouls, and non-player fouls will be enforced as dead ball fouls but all other penalties that may have occurred will be discounted.

Any change of possession that occurs during an improper down, including fumble recoveries, interceptions, and scoring plays are removed when an improper down is corrected.

Timing issues on improper downs may be corrected – including those occurring at the end of any quarter by invoking Rule 3-3-5d. The Referee must verify prior to raising the ball above his/her head that “no irregularities” have occurred – this gives officials an opportunity to fix a timing issue occurring on the last play of any quarter. Please not that once the ball is above the Referee’s head no timing issues may be corrected.
