NCAA Football Rules Committee Looking at Adding Helmet Cams
The NCAA football rules committee wants to experiment with helmet cameras, wireless communication between coaches and players on the field and the use of computers on the sideline.
The committee announced Wednesday after two days of meetings in Indianapolis that it was hoping to gather data about expanding the use of technology in college football with an eye toward implementing rules as soon as possible.
The NCAA says several conferences proposed experimenting with these rules and committee chairman and Air Force coach Troy Calhoun suggested the technology be used in some December bowl games during the 2015 season.
The committee also passed a proposal to adjust the ineligible downfield rule from 3 yards to 1 yard past the line of scrimmage and to allow for eight-man officiating crews.
