The NCAA rules committee said Friday it wants to make it illegal for defenders to hurdle linemen to block a kick and to expand what constitutes a horse collar tackle. It decided against tinkering with the targeting rule to eliminate the ejection penalty for some of the fouls.
The rules committee also proposed requiring players to wear knee pads and pants that cover the knees. All proposals still need approval from the Oversight Panel, which meets April 19. If approved, the changes would go into effect next season.
