For playoff games, the clock will stop during the last minute of each half at incomplete passes, change of possession, out of bounds and scores.
Playoff games can not end in a Tie. If at the end of regulation the game is tied then-
i) First possession choice goes to the winner of regulation coin toss, loser of toss chooses direction.
ii) Each team gets at least 1 possession; all regulation rules & penalties are in effect, there are no time-outs.
iii) Each team starts with the ball at the 7 yard line going towards closest goal line (1 play to score)
(1) Teams can run or pass the ball (NO RUN ZONE isn’t used in overtime). Teams score touchdowns (no extra points in overtime). If both teams score or don’t score touchdowns, the process is repeated.
(2) Interceptions stop the play and ball is dead.
(1) 1st OT & 2nd OT…Team’s alternate possession (teams have 1 play to score for each OT)… 3rd OT or more OT’s…score or yardage gained will end game…If teams score than we go to next OT…if Team A doesn’t score then the yards gained is marked. Team B runs 1 play …if they don’t score…yards gained is marked …team gaining most yardage wins.
