Walter Camp contributed the following changes from Rugby and Soccer to American football: one side retained undisputed possession of the ball, until that side gives up the ball as a result of its own violations the line of scrimmage 11 on a team instead of 15 created the quarter-back and center positions forward pass standardized the scoring system, numerical scoring created the safety, interference, penalties, and the neutral zone tackling as low as the knee was permitted in 1888 a touchdown increased in value to six points and field goals went down to three points in 1912

In the late 19th and 20th centuries, game play developments by collage coaches, Eddie Cochems, Alonzo Stagg, Knute Rockne, and Glenn Pop Warner, help take advantage of the new forward passing. The popularity of college football grew as it became the dominant version of the sport in the United States for the first half of the twentieth century. Bowl games attracted a national audience for college teams. Encouraged by fierce rivalries, college football still holds widespread appeal in the USA.

Out side of America football is known as gridiron or tackle football but in America it is known as just football. The objective of the game is to score points by advancing the ball into the opposing team's end zone. The ball can be advanced by carrying it. Known as a running play. by throwing it to a teammate. It is known as a passing play. Points can be scored in different of ways, including carrying the ball over the other team s goal line catching a pass thrown over that goal line kicking the ball through the goal posts at the other team s end zone, or tackling an other team s ball carrier within his end zone. The winner is the team with the most points when the time expires

It is a game about gaining yards as much as it is about scoring points. When two teams go onto a football field, both are battling for every inch it can take from the other. Each team wants to defend the field that is behind it and invade the field in front of it. They want to gain enough ground to score a touchdown or field goal.
