Rule 8 – Section 4 – Article 2 – Next Play
b. Unsuccessful field goal attempt.
- When the ball is declared dead and is untouched by Team B beyond the neutral zone, it belongs to Team B. Except in an extra period, Team B will snap the ball at either the previous spot, the 20-yard line or the dead ball spot (whichever is most advantageous to Team B).
(a) The 20-yard-line snap shall be from midway between the hash marks unless Team B selects a different location on or between the hash marks before the ready-for- play signal.
(b) After the ready-for-play signal, the ball may be relocated after a charged team timeout, unless preceded by a Team A foul or offsetting fouls.
- If the ball does not cross the neutral zone, or if Team B touches the ball after it crosses the neutral zone, all rules pertaining to scrimmage kicks apply. (A.R. 6-3-4:II) (A.R. 8-4-2:I-VI) (A.R. 10-2-3:V)
