Pass interference rule
by: David Walker

The fifteen yard penalty for interference on a long pass gives the defender incentive to commit the foul. If he can prevent a touchdown and receive only a fifteen yard penalty, then why not commit the foul? Someone please help me with this.

Baylor Loves 15-Yard Pass Interference Penalties

I agree with you. Teams such as Baylor take advantage of this rule and frequently commit defensive pass interference whenever an opponent's wide receiver is going for a long pass, resulting only in a 15-yard gain. After all, Baylor players figure that a 15-yard penalty is better than a pass for more yards or even a touchdown pass.
