While all the talk about the 10-second proposal has dominated conversation, the NCAA Playing Rules Oversight Panel voted to adjust the targeting rule, according to ESPN.

The rules committee approved a proposal that an overturned targeting penalty foul would not result in a 15-yard penalty. This past season, the ejection to the player could be overturned upon review, but the 15-yard penalty still stood. Now, the committee has approved that if the player ejection penalty is overturned, the 15-yard penalty would also.
The adjustment keeps the intent of the rule, but if a missed call happens, officials can correct it.
Finally, the NCAA makes a change we can all agree with. Thankfully, this won’t happen again.
