Get rid of the ball within 10 seconds of the snap or he is down at the spot he is standing.
No field goals – Because of the fact that there are no goal posts.
Only one First Down is attainable – Because of the short field and the limited amount of players there is only one first down

"We don''t do weddings or any of dat crap, all we do is the Trukey Bowl so we're damn good at it." Scott Treml.
Thanksgiving Day 2005 the temperature was in the teens and
a westerly wind blew at a steady 28 miles per hour with gusts to 35 miles per hour. Frozen snow covered the field which had fallen two days before the game. This by far was going to be the coldest Turkey Bowl ever! The game was close in the first half with each team taking turns taking the lead. In the second half the Blue Jell-O's lost the ability to score and the Oneida Red Gobblers broke out and went ahead and in the end they overwhelmed the Hobart Blue Jell-O's with a score of 49 to 21. The Turkey Bowl MVP was Jason Schmunkey with a whopping 3 interceptions and a fumble recovery which was certainly a contributing factor in the Red Gobblers domination of the second half of TB VI.
