College Football Officiating (CFO) again offers TASO Football members a discounted registration for the 2020 season. Discounted 80% from other members, TASO members will receive full access to this leading rules and training site featuring video reviews, quizzes, bulletin updates and a searchable rules book; everything an official needs to improve this great game of football we all love. Here’s a quick overview of the features.


National training videos as well as CFO game reviews are available and updated in the preseason as well as throughout the season. You will have access to in‑season CFO Game Video Reviews, preseason weekly CFO/NCAA Annual Training videos and occasional topical videos. Officials will have the opportunity to see plays posted by coordinators from conferences across the country and all videos can be viewed on Apple and Android mobile devices. This is a terrific visual learning tool.


The NCAA National Rules Test is now available through July 13. The test is 100 questions which are grouped by play type. The testing interface is outstanding, showing questions that have been answered or viewed, and it can be taken in multiple sittings. There is even a downloadable pdf for those that prefer to study before or after the test. Members are allowed two opportunities to merit a passing grade, and beginning August 1 you can see your results along with book references to help understand the ruling. Rogers Redding always challenged members to score at least 90 while taking the test “closed‑book.” Are you up for the challenge?

CFO offers preseason quizzes which are currently archived and ready for new member’s review. During the season bi‑weekly tests are available to help members stay honed and prepared. This is a great tool for crews and individuals alike and leads to great rules discussions with fellow officials.


This rules database includes case books with easy reference between the two. This incredible learning tool acts as an eBook and is the ultimate study guide for those that are serious about increasing their rules knowledge.

Throughout the year members have access to periodic bulletins highlighting changing interpretations and policies, and the leading college football experts from across the country.


Simply visit cfo.arbitersports.com and click the registration tab in the ribbon across the top of the page. Once there, click the second box labeled “International, Massachusetts, & TASO” and enter your information. The cost is only $40 for TASO members to receive full access to the site. And while you won’t receive the rules, mechanics and replay books or the CFO shirt patches, you will receive access to a treasure chest of knowledge meant to make you the best official you can be.
