Abstract: The program matches two players in a simulated football game, running under BASIC-8. The offensive team may select from six plays, plus punt and field goal attempt while the defense is chosen from four patterns, plus attempted block of kicks. The offense enters its plays through the teletype, while the defense is entered through the switch register, using the special UUF(X) patch. Play is timed against a software "clock;" each side is allowed three "time outs" per half. The duration of the game is four quarters, with additional periods in the event of a tie score. Actual time for a game averages 40-60 minutes.
