The previous rule was if the kick was ruled no good and the ball went through the end zone or struck an upright it was considered a touchback and the ball was placed on the 20 yard line. If the ball did not get to the end zone and the non kicking team did not attempt to return it, the ball was placed at the spot the officials whistled it dead.
