    HS has running clock and they also make money but nothing even remotely close to College. Once a game is well out of hand the bleachers are gonna start emptying so why not make some type of clock adjustment in these games?

    This. I like college football way more than the NFL, but I'd LOVE to see college adopt the timing rules used by the NFL.

    I believe there should be a running clock anytime UK is ahead by more than 8 points in the 4th quarter.

    They just need to stop reviewing every other play to speed up play. I hate the idea of a running clock in college football. I don't care how much the stands empy out.

    The rule that needs to go is stopping the clock to move the chains on first down. How much time would that save per game.

    This!

    College football games are stupid long because of their clock rules. When teams can run 13 play drives and only burn 2 minutes off the clock, you got a problem. And it bothers me to no end that stats are skewed so much now with how the game is played.

    I don't even believe it should be at 35 in high school.
