NCAA playing rules oversight committee announced alterations in football and other sports to accommodate for COVID-19 concerns this coming season.
The team sideline area currently extends from one 25-yard line to another. Those areas will now span from 15 to 15. Currently, as many as four team captains can participate in the coin toss. That has been reduced to one and only two officials will be allowed to participate.
