Rule change for college football
(NEWSCHANNEL 3) - A controversial new rule change is taking place this year that could lead to several players being thrown out of games in college football.
The penalty is called "targeting" and it can be enforced when someone hits a ball carrier's head during a tackle.
Critics believe the rule goes too far, saying a ferocious hit by Jadeveon Clowney on Michigan's Vincent Smith in the Outback Bowl would probably now get him kicked out of the game even though most believe it was a clean play.
This new rule is sure to spark a lot of controversy this fall.
