NCAA announces approval for college football preseason

Last week, the Division I Football Oversight Committee submit a proposal for summer athletic activities and preseason practices for the 2020 season. On Wednesday, the NCAA made a decision regarding the committee’s request.

Moments ago, the Division I Council approved the preseason model for college football. This means summer access activities will begin July 13, meetings and walk-throughs can start on July 24, and preseason practices can occur as early as August 7.

The NCAA is accepting this model with the idea that September 5 will be the first game of the 2020 season.

Next up on the agenda for the NCAA might be figuring out whether or not fans can attend games. Certain states have said they would welcome spectators, while others have been against the idea.
