The Michigan High School Athletic Association is expanding the use of instant replay in its 11-man high school football state championship games.
Starting this year, coaches will be given one challenge during a game. If the on-field decision is upheld, a team will lose a timeout. Coaches will be allowed to challenge the following, according to a story on the MHSAA website:
“complete/incomplete passes, if a runner/receiver was in/out of bounds, a runner who is ruled not down, the forward progress spot as it relates to the yard to gain, which player first touched a kick, the recovery of a ball in/out of bounds, if a pass was forward or backward, and penalties for illegal forward pass, targeting or illegal helmet contact, and pass interference only as it relates to the pass being previously tipped.”MHSAA
All potential scores and turnovers will remain automatically reviewed by replay booth officials.
The MHSAA has been using replay on all scoring and turnovers in the state finals at Ford Field, home of the Detroit Lions, since 2019.
