The University Interscholastic League (UIL) announced they will use instant replay at all UIL Football State Championship games beginning in the 2018-2019 school year.

The UIL plays football by NCAA rules, and each year the UIL reviews exceptions to the rules through a rules committee. UIL will use the NCAA rules for instant replay with two exceptions:

  1. There will be no coaches’ challenges. All reviews will be initiated by the replay officials
  2. Targeting will not be called as a result of a review. Targeting will only be called by the officials on the field.

All reviews will take place in a replay booth, with a collegiate replay official reviewing plays. Replays will not be allowed during regular season games or playoff games.
