|College football seasons
The 1910 college football season had no clear-cut champion, with the Official NCAA Division I Football Records Book listing Harvard and Pittsburgh as national champions. Only Harvard claims a national championship for the 1910 season.
Rule changes were made prior to the 1910 season to permit more use of the forward pass, with complicated limitations:
- The only eligible receivers were the two ends, who could catch a pass no more than 20 yards beyond the line of scrimmage, and could not be interfered with until the ball was caught.
- A legal pass could not be thrown unless the quarterback was at least 5 yards behind the line of scrimmage and the rest of the players, except the two ends, were at least 1 yard behind the scrimmage line.
- On kickoffs and punts, the kicking team's players could not be touched until they had advanced 20 yards
- Flying tackles were outlawed, and "the man making a tackle must have at least one foot on the ground".
- The ballcarrier could no longer be aided in any way by his teammates.
Other rules in 1910 were:
- Field 110 yards in length
- Kickoff made from midfield
- Three downs to gain ten yards
- Touchdown worth 5 points
- Field goal worth 3 points
- Game time based on agreement of the teams, not to exceed two 45 minute halves.
