(AP) The new penalties for targeting in college football resulted in 10 ejections in 75 FBS games during the first weekend of the season, though three of the ejections were overturned by instant replay.


National Coordinator of Officials Rogers Redding says that the rate of targeting penalties was similar to last season, when there was one called for every eight games. He says It's too soon to know if the ejection that goes along with the 15-yard penalty will affect how frequently the penalty is called.


The NCAA changed the penalty for targeting a defenseless player with a hit to the head to add an ejection this season.


Rogers says he is encouraged by signs that players are lowering their targets when they hit.
