If there is a sack the down advances, and the number of yards for a first down increases by the loss on the play. Since we deal only with the final 2:00, the clock continues to run following a sack (in accordance with the Exception to Supplemental Note 3 following Rule 4-3-7).

Timeouts,incomplete passes, injuries in which the injured player can't get off the field, and finally, going out of bounds.

In college football does the clock stop when going out of bounds?

The game clock stops when a ball carrier goes out of bounds maintaining forward momentum. The game clock continues if the ball carrier's forward momentum is stopped in bounds before he goes out of bounds. For most of the game, the clock is restarted when the line judge resets the ball and whistles play to continue. The exception is in the last 2 minutes of the first half or the last 5 minutes of the second half. In those cases, the clock does not start again until the offense snaps the ball.
