The SCADA North-South Game has been a one sided affair in recent years. The North was won the last four games including a 42-3 blowout last year. So in an effort to improve competition, the game’s director Keith Richardson implemented new rules this restricting offensive and defensive formations.
For example, the offensive teams can only use five formations and three of those have to include a tight end. And a running back has to be in each formation. And the defensive teams will line up in a standard 4-3 with three defensive backs underneath and a single safety.
All of this is being done in the name of competition and in the hopes of providing a few more offensive fireworks for the fans to enjoy.
