The offense will receive one point for a first down, one point for a point after touchdown, two points for any play exceeding 30 yards, three points for a field goal and six points for a touchdown.

The defense will be awarded one point for any stop, two points for holding the offense to three plays and a punt on the first set of downs in a possession, two points for a fourth-down stop, three points for a turnover and nine points for a touchdown.
