What is the most yards you can lose on a penalty in football?

In college football, the most yards that the offense or defense can be penalized is 15 yards. In the NFL, that is unknown since a pass interference penalty on the defense is spotted at the spot of the foul. That means the penalty could be 20 yards, 30 yards, or even more. The most yards the offensive team can be penalized is 15 yards for a personal foul. *But since the NFL, etc. have the half-distance rule, the most you could lose is 50 yards (if you are on 'x' down and inches, the distance to the other endzone is 100 yards; half of this is 50 yards).
