"Team A may elect to give Team B the ball at Team B’s 25-yard line, beginning a new series of downs with a first-and-10.

"If Team A is successful in making a first down, Team A will maintain possession and a new series of downs will continue as normal.
"If Team A is unsuccessful in making a first down, the result will be a turnover on downs and Team B will take possession at the dead ball spot."
