Four 20 minute quarters I believe. When the ball is bounced the game runs pretty much flat chat. It's the fastest football game I've seen.

I played it when I was a kid but hardly follow it now.

I remember watching a gridiron game and the thing went about 3 hours due to the time outs. It's a good game though. I think if they were to ditch the time out the game might get more international spectators. That is just a guess of course.
