Digest of Rules Main

Double Foul

  1. If there is a double foul during a down in which there is a change of possession, the team last gaining possession may keep the ball unless its foul was committed prior to the change of possession.
  2. If double foul occurs after a change of possession, the defensive team retains the ball at the spot of its foul or dead ball spot.
  3. If one of the fouls of a double foul involves disqualification, that player must be removed, but no penalty yardage is to be assessed.
  4. If the kickers foul during a kickoff, punt, safety kick, or field-goal attempt before possession changes, the receivers will have the option of replaying the down at the previous spot (offsetting fouls), or keeping the ball after enforcement for its fouls.
