FOOTBALL, AMERICAN, type of football that developed in the U.S. in the 19th century from association football, or soccer, and Rugby football (principally the latter).
In preseason or regular-season pro football games, if both teams have scored the same number of points at the end of regulation time, the teams are allowed a 3-min rest and then engage in a “sudden-death” overtime period in which the first team to score is the winner.
In college football, the team winning the toss may elect to be given first choice at the start of the second half, thereby allowing the other team first pick of the options at the beginning of the game.
