kick off out of bounds
« on: September 21, 2020, 04:47:33 pm »
What is the penalty for kicking the ball out of bounds on the kick off? Is it 15 yds from the spot the ball went out of bounds?

Three options:

1.) you can take the ball where it goes out of bounds
2.) back the kicking team up 5 yards and re-kick
3.) or take the ball 25 yards from the kick line (normally the 35 yard line because the kicking team kicks off from the other 40 yard line - thus 25 yards)

Option 1 now comes with 5 yards added on to the spot of  the ball where it went out of bounds from.
