NCAA: Playoffs up to FCS members

(Stats Perform) - The NCAA's board of governors punted on the decision to conduct postseason events such as the FCS playoffs this fall, instead telling the schools and conferences on Wednesday to make the call.

The governing body set Aug. 21 as the deadline for individual sports across its three levels to determine whether it can safely have a regular season and postseason during the COVID-19 pandemic. It said the FCS - the 127-member lower half of D-I college football - will only have a playoff if at least 50 percent of eligible programs play this fall, and the 24-team event can be reduced in size.

The board of governors, the highest ruling committee at the NCAA, did not use its authority to determine whether there would be championship events in 22 sports. The FCS playoff decision falls to the 40-member Division I Council, which is comprised of mostly school athletic directors.
