NORFOLK -- It's football season again. 

Old Dominion University's Intercultural Relations Office kicked off its Football 101 seminar. The idea is to explain the rules of the game to students who want to understand the uniquely American sport.

40 students learned about offensive lines and terms like "first and 10" from grad students Stephen Villanueva and Charles Walls.

"I didn't understand everything and I was really paying attention because we don't have this game in my country," said Sara Bouazzaoui, who's from Morocco.

Having some understanding will come in handy if the students want to go to any of the ODU football games this season.
