SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – The NCAA Football Oversight Committee has approved the six-week preseason practice plan.

According to Stadium’s Brett McMurphy and Yahoo! Sports’ Pete Thamel, the committee approved the plan and will now turn it over to the NCAA Division I Council to vote on the plan. The council will meet on June 17 to vote on the plan.

If the council approves the plan, schools will be able to have access to their players beginning on July 13. If teams play during Week 0, they will be able to begin the preseason plan on July 6.

On July 13, the student-athletes will begin with strength workouts and film study with coaches. The eight-hour weeks would transition to 20 hours per week on July 24. It’s comparable to the NFL’s OTA’s. Training camp would begin on August 7.

Thamel is also reporting that lots of coaches around the country wondered how the 20-hour summer access portion of the plan is broken up. It was clarified by Yahoo! Sports with 8 hours in weight training, 6 hours of walk-throughs and 6 hours of meetings.
