This is #48 in a series covering football's original 61 rules adopted by the Intercollegiate Football Association in 1876. We review one rule each Friday. Last week, we covered the spotting of a try at goal following a touchdown. Rule 47 told us they walked the ball out perpendicularly from where it crossed the goal line, and the kicking team could walk the ball out the distance they chose. Rule 48 modified Rule 47 when touching the ball down between the goal posts.
