NCAA Approves Waivers for Schools Due to COVID-19

The NCAA has approved a waiver allowing schools to spend below the minimum level on athletic scholarships required to compete in Division I. 

A council approved two other blanket waivers that had been requested by several conferences in response to the pandemic.  Football and basketball players will be allowed to participate in summer activities without being enrolled in school. 

Also, schools that are in the process of moving to D-I can be counted toward the minimum required Division I opponents.
