2020 CFB rule changes: COVID-19 protocols, targeting and instant replay

CBS Sports: College football season is arriving, without the Big Ten and Pac-12 participating. But even with just three Power Five conferences — the SEC, ACC and Big 12 — scheduled to be in action beginning in September, you can bet there will be at least one close loss that a fanbase blames on poor officiating this month.

Don’t expect fans to take it easy on the officials this season just because they are adjusting to some new rules for the 2020 season. A couple of the new rules even have a direct impact on the officials as they will no longer be using traditional whistles and will now be under a time crunch during replay reviews.
