STATISTICAL SCORING RULES

SECTION 24 — DETERMINING LINE OF SCRIMMAGE

For statistical purposes, the line of scrimmage will be the yard line closest to the front of the ball (the front being the end of the ball farthest from the Team A Goal Line as defined in the Rule Book: Rule 4, Section 1, Article 1), except when the ball is resting inside the one-yard line, it will then be considered to be on the one-yard line.
