Clock Operation
Clock Rules to Live By
 
  1. Touchdown signal stops the clock
  2. Timeout signal stops the clock (fig 1.)
  3. If the clock is stopped, do not take your eyes off of the referee
    • There will be no ready-for-play whistle or chop from the Referee when
      the play clock is to be set for 40 seconds, although the Referee will re-start the game clock
      (with a silent wind) after it was stopped for a first down inbounds.
