With the clock having one second left for a college football game does the whole play count when the clock runs out?


Yes, in college and professional football, the clock does not stop a play. If the clock runs down to 0 while a play is going on, the quarter is over when the play is done.

In addition, if certain circumstances occur on the last play (such as specific penalties), the quarter will be extended by one more play.

From the NCAA Football 2013 and 2014 Rules and Interpretations, Rule 3 (Periods, Time Factors and Substitutions), Section 2, Article 1 (Length of Periods and Intermissions):

a. No period shall end until the ball is dead and the referee declares the period ended.

From the 2013 Official Playing Rules of the NFL, Rule 4, Section 8 (Extension of a Period or a Half):

Section 8 Extension of a Period or a Half
Article 1 If time expires at the end of any period while the ball is in play, the period continues until the down...

Start time is the estimated kickoff time. Back in the day some tickets would actually say EST Kickoff Time 2:00 PM. However most tickets don't include times anymore since game times are so often changed for TV networks. +1 for anyone that can find an old ticket with Kickoff Time printed because they definitely existed.

As for NFL and major colleges you will find that their kickoff time is usually right at the estimated start time. They want that kickoff right at the slotted time to get the viewer hooked in. In the NFL a game is behind if the kickoff happens at 12:03 for a noon game. This does happen and might be a variety of reasons - malfunction at stadium, ref needs to hit the bathroom, whatever - but most games do start right at noon (within a minute) if scheduled for that.

College games are pretty much the same way although there is more variance for issues to arise and the games will more commonly start a couple minutes past estimated kickoff time (which is the...

Something confuses the heck out of me in regards to TV broadcasting of (American) Football.

I used to live in Seattle. On Sunday, there were the early games, and the later games. One was selected to be televised at 1:00 (EST), and one at 4:00 (EST), regardless of which time slot the local team (Seahawks) were playing in. Easy enough.

I now live in New York. There are still early and late games, of course, at the same times. There are two local teams (Giants/Jets). But often if neither of those teams is playing in the later time slot, no game will be shown. Why?

Now, the first impression I had was that this was just a remarkably poor programming decision made by TV execs...but I once heard the announcers at the end of the early game say something like:

A: And coming up next, you'll be seeing one of these three games... B: Unless you're in New York, of course. A: Of course.


It sounded slightly sarcastic, like they understood that the policy was...

In sports, running out the clock (also known as stonewalling, killing the clock, chewing the clock, stalling, or eating clock[1]) refers to the practice of a winning team allowing the clock to expire through a series of pre-selected plays, either to preserve a lead or hasten the end of a one-sided contest. Generally, it is the opposite strategy of running up the score. Most leagues take steps to prevent teams from doing this, the most common measure being a time limit for completing a play, such as a play clock or shot clock.

In American football, a 15-minute (in many high school football codes and the German Football League, 12-minute) game clock is used in each quarter of a game. A team in possession of the lead and the ball will attempt to use up as much of the game clock as possible in order to bring the game to an end more quickly, thus denying the opposition another chance on offense.

Typically, the leading team will execute a series of simple rushing plays (the...
