FCS conferences await NCAA insight

(Stats Perform) - The ball - literally - is going back in the hands of FCS conferences.

The seven that have remained hopeful with having a fall season must determine their direction following Tuesday's NCAA Board of Governors meeting, where discussion centered around potential competition during the COVID-19 pandemic. The meeting ended without any immediate announcement, which reportedly won't happen before Wednesday morning.

The Big Sky, Big South, Missouri Valley, Ohio Valley, Pioneer, Southern and Southland conferences and a handful of independent programs - about 75 of the 127 FCS programs - awaited insight from the meeting. Whether the NCAA will sponsor championship events, including the FCS playoffs, was a key topic. A lack of championship events, which the NCAA canceled during the winter and spring seasons due to the pandemic, could be received as the governing body suggesting there should not be fall competition, although it doesn't control the regular season.
