The NCAA football rules committee has instituted a number of rules to decrease the number of collisions on kickoffs, and way be on the verge of another one, Nicole Auerbach reports.

This would drastically alter Ohio State's kickoff strategy as the Buckeyes currently employ a compress/contain kickoff tactic where they attempt to place a high kickoff between the five yard-line and the goal line between the numbers and the sideline. This would render that tactic useless.
