STATISTICAL SCORING RULES

SECTION 23 — TIME OF POSSESSION

Time of Possession is to be recorded by CFL Stats Crews and is to be credited to a Team whenever it is in possession of the football.

For kicking plays such as kickoffs, punts and missed field goals, Team B's possession starts upon the successful control of the football.

The total Time of Possession (Team A's TOP plus Team B's TOP) for every CFL game must equal 60 minutes (60:00).
