Published

College football teams will face no eligibility requirements for the 2020 season the Division I Council announced Wednesday.

The Council decided to waive both bowl eligibility requirements and the minimum number of games for every football team.

“In keeping with the Division I membership’s desire to provide maximum flexibility during the COVID-19 pandemic, the Council voted to allow as many student-athletes as possible the opportunity to participate in bowl games this year,” said Council chair M. Grace Calhoun. “The decision also provides some certainty for schools and coaches as we move toward the postseason.”

Normally, a team would need to have a .500 overall record to qualify for a postseason bowl game.

The council also decided that postseason bowl games will be played between Dec. 1, 2020 and Jan. 11, 2021.
