The OHSAA will adopt a Football Point Differential Rule (Mercy Rule) for 2014- '15. The change was approved by the Ohio High School Athletic Association Board of Directors last week at it's May board meeting.

The rule reads as follows. After the first half, any time the score reaches 30 points or more the clock will be allowed to run. During that time the clock will stop when: An officials time out is called for injury, or following a change of possession, a charged time out is called, the end of a quarter, or a score occurs. The clock will start again on the ready for play signal for the first play after the above situations. If at any time the score drops below 30 points the clock will go back to regular timing.
