STATISTICAL SCORING RULES

SECTION 6 — INTERCEPTION RETURNS

  1. Run backs on interception of forward passes shall be measured from the point of interception to the point where the ball is declared dead or is recovered by opponents in case of a fumble. Such gains are, of course, not included in Yards Gained Passing.
  2. Where a pass is intercepted in the Goal Area and the interceptor is not successful in running out of the Goal Area, that player will still be credited with the yards returned to the point where the ball is declared dead.
