The NCAA football rules committee has proposed a change to the targeting rule that would eliminate the 15-yard penalty when instant replay officials overturn an ejection.
Last year, when a targeting penalty was called, the 15-yard penalty stood even if the replay official determined the player should be allowed to stay in the game.
The proposal needs approval from the playing rules oversight panel.
The rules committee also proposed a change to allow defenses to substitute within the first 10 seconds of the 40-second play clock, with the exception of the final two minutes of each half. Offenses would not be allowed to snap the ball until 29 seconds are left on the play clock.
The proposed change is in response to no-huddle offenses that don't allow defenses to substitute.
