Spike ball to stop clock - QB under center?


New member
In six man, does spiking the ball to stop the clock have to be QB under center to avoid an intentional grounding penalty? It looks like that is the case for 11 man NCAA.

No. Any game using NCAA rules, including Texas sixman, the QB does not have to be under the snapper. A couple of requirements, the snap cannot hit the ground and the ball must be thrown into the ground immediately.
