The NCAA is officially moving kickoffs from the 30 to the 35-yard line next season with the hope to keep players safer. The panel also approved a rule that will require a player who loses his helmet during a play to leave the game for one play, and there are also new guidelines regarding blocking below the waist and blocking on punt returns.

Annnnd yawn.
