Rule changes

The NCAA football rules committee proposed several rule changes for 2009 The rule changes include the following:

  • If the home team wears colored jerseys, the visiting team may also wear colored jerseys so long as the two teams have agreed to do so This rule comes as a result of the traditional USC-UCLA game where both teams wore their home uniforms Previously, the visiting team would be charged a first-half timeout for illegal equipment
  • If the punter carries the ball outside of the tackle box, he is no longer protected under the roughing the kicker penalty
  • Deliberately grabbing the chin strap is now included as part of the face mask penalty
  • The edge of the tackle box is defined as being five yards to the left and right of the snapper, rather than two parallel lines from the position of the offensive tackles
  • Periods will not be extended for plays that result in loss of down ie illegal forward pass
  • If a defensive player is injured, the play clock will be reset to 40 seconds The play clock will be reset to 25 seconds for an injury to an offensive player

Conference changes

For the first time since 1983, every conference in Division I FBS, even those that did not contest a championship game, had an undisputed champion

In July 2011, the NCAA released its findings in a 2-year investigation into allegations of a Georgia Tech player receiving $321 of clothing from a runner for an agent While, no conclusive evidence was brought against the player, actions taken by the GT athletic department were perceived as an attempt to hinder the NCAA investigation into this offense Despite requesting the investigation be kept a secret, the Georgia Tech AD informed head coach Paul Johnson of the investigation The NCAA determined that the player should have been declared ineligible for the final three games of the 2009 season To punish Georgia Tech for an accused "lack of cooperation" and hindering the investigation, they were required to vacate the ACC Championship game win, along with other penalties As such, there is currently no official 2009 ACC Champion
