Yup In ncaa, nfl, high school or pretty much any other type of football the offense must advance the ball 10 yards in 4 downs to earn a new set of downs.

American Football - NFL and collegiate A team has 4 downs to go 10 yards, and earn a new set of downs. Otherwise the ball control goes to the opposing team. Downs may be replayed if a penalty is ruled and accepted.

A first down is the start of an offensive scrimmage. There are 4 scrimmage downs per set. Thus, Team A has 4 scrimmage downs to advance the football to or past the line of gain (10 yards) by play or penalty, which would entitle Team A to a new set of downs.

Teams get four downs to move the ball 10 yards. If they gain the 10 yards, they get a new set of four downs. This can continue indefinitely until either the team scores, time runs out in the half or the game, or the team gives up or loses possession of the ball. In Canadian football, teams get three downs to move the ball 10 yards.

Both sports have a concept of moving a football down the field without getting tackled and for the most metres excrpt ruby has no amount of downs, you can only pass backwards and the clock doesn't stop after each incomplete play.

The minimum number of downs a team has is four. The maximum number of downs a team can have is theoretically unlimited as long as they reach the line of gain (10 yards from the starting point of the first down in that particular set).

one set each

Once the offense gets a new set of downs between the 10 yard line on both sides of the field, they must travel 10 yards to get a new set of downs. If it is inside the 10, they cannot get a new set of downs except for a penalty situation or a multiple possession change. Of course, once the ball is whistled "ready for play" by the referee, the outcome of the play and any possible penalties can change the amount of distance until they get a first down, but when the first down is decided until the ready for play whistle, it is 10 yards.
