Major rule changes

  • The free substitution rule is modified so that substitutes do not have to report to the officials before a play.
  • Communication between the players and coaches on the field is permitted as long as the coaches are in the designated areas along the sidelines, and that they do not cause a delay in the game.
  • If the offensive team commits pass interference in their opponent's end zone, it is just a distance penalty and no longer an automatic touchback.
