How many yards are there in a football field?

100 yards

It is widely known that a football field has 100 yards.  The main idea is that the field measures 100 yards long and 53 yards wide.  Keep in mind that the position where you catch the ball (near the goal line) to the opposing goal line is a long way to go, and, with the ovoid shape of the ball it becomes extremely difficult to regain possession once it has been lost.  The main reason is that the ball bounces around in every which way.
