The state of Idaho, pending another Idaho High School Activities Association board vote, have approved a new football mercy rule that will spread across all 11-man football classifications.
Here’s a look at the new rule according to the Idaho Statesman:
‘The rule stipulates that once a team is ahead by 40 points in the second half, the clock will run continuously with the exception of timeouts, official timeouts and scoring plays. The rule will need to pass another board vote in August before it can officially take effect for the 2016 season.’
