Division I Football Oversight Committee

The NCAA Division I Football Oversight Committee will ensure that appropriate oversight of football for both the Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS) and NCAA Football Championship Subdivision (FCS) is maintained; enhance the development of the sport; and make recommendations related to regular-season and postseason football. The Football Oversight Committee will prioritize enhancement of the student-athlete educational experience (academically and athletically), and in doing so, promote student-athletes' personal growth and leadership development. It will work in conjunction with appropriate governance entities to provide solutions to issues impacting the health and safety of football student-athletes.

The Football Oversight Committee will supervise procedures for licensing of postseason bowls and qualifications and/or selection procedures for the FCS Championship. The Football Oversight Committee will review recommendations from the NCAA Division I Football Championship Committee and process other issues related to the administration of the FCS Championship. The Football Oversight Committee will assume many of the duties of the former NCAA Division I Football Issues Committee and will provide direction to the NCAA Football Rules Committee regarding playing rules governing FBS and FCS football. The Football Oversight Committee will be comprised of representatives from each divisional subgroup that sponsors football.
