    On the 2017 NCAA/CFO National Rules Test, #84 on the pdf is incorrectly framed, as none of the answer choices is correct.  The correct answer is that the play is “Not reviewable."
    Second and 10 at the A-10 during a game with Instant Replay.  Ball carrier A22 is running very near the sideline at the A-15, but then cuts back toward the middle of the field and is tackled at the A-25.  The head linesman rules that A22 stepped out of bounds at the A-15.  Replays show clearly A22 did not step out.
    a.  Based on the decision by the replay official, Team A will have second and 5 at the A-15.

    b.  The result of the play will stand unless the Team B coach challenges it.
    c.  The play is not reviewable.  First and 10 for Team A at the A-25.
    Since you must answer all questions to submit your test. For this question, you can select answer C and you will be given credit for a correct answer. If you select A or B, your test score will reflect an incorrect answer. This will be corrected after the test closes. Once the test has closed, all officials submitting a test will be given credit for a correct answer.

    We welcome you back to the official website of College Football Officiating, LLC (CFO)!  Our “central hub” provides a common national platform where we can gather for mutual growth and improvement, as we strive to improve the great game of college football.  Allow me to give you a brief walk-through of the features of this site.

    REGISTRATION is now available, and officials who register with the "2017 CFO Officials" registration will receive a Welcome Packet that includes a 2016 and 2017 Rules and Interpretations Book, 2017 Instant Replay Case Book, and 2017 CCA Crew of 7 & 8 College Football Officiating Manual.  In addition, ArbiterSports and Referee Enterprises will again provide a digital CCA manual app for all NCAA registered football officials.

    On the VIDEO Tab, you will receive your in-season CFO Game Video Reviews, CFO/NCAA Annual Training Video and Instant Replay Training Video for 2017, and occasional topical videos.  All registered officials will have opportunities this season to see plays posted by coordinators from conferences across the country, part of our mission to promote national consistency in collegiate football. Additionally, all videos can be viewed on Apple and Android mobile devices.

    The CFO/NCAA National Rules Test will be available on the TESTING tab from June 15 through July 7.  This is a great tool for honing your rules knowledge and application.  I encourage you to meet my challenge of scoring 90% or higher (there are 100 questions) in a self-imposed “closed book” test. 

    The searchable NCAA Football Rules and Interpretations book can be found on the RULES Tab. The database includes rules and case books that basically operate as “e-books” and are searchable. The database also allows quick and easy reference between rules and their case items (and vice versa), which is a great feature.  I encourage you to make extensive use of this asset, and discover for yourself the ways an online presentation can help you study and know the rules of NCAA football. 

    The ArbiterMobile app is now available at no cost to NCAA registered officials. Click here to read ArbiterMobile FAQs.

    Please check the central hub often for the latest officiating news and information. Officials should not hesitate to CONTACT us to offer suggestions on how we can best use this site to help you. On behalf of the CFO’s Board of Managers, welcome to the organization, and have a great season!
