Big Ten changes football stadium replays

PARK RIDGE, IL -

The Big Ten is allowing an unlimited number of replays to be shown on video boards in football stadiums.

The conference announced the new replay policy Wednesday.

Previously, stadiums were allowed to show one replay at no less than 75 percent of real-time speed. The new policy allows for multiple replays at any speed.

Senior associate commissioner Mark Rudner said the previous policy was an attempt to "limit the scope and size" of controversial plays.

Rudner said the Big Ten Football Gameday Experience Subcommittee believes fans at the stadium should be able to see replays the same as people watching at home.

The subcommittee also recommends that stadiums have wireless Internet access, exclusive content for their video boards and other amenities.
