Which programs supported, opposed multiyear scholarships


Earlier this month, the NCAA’s legislation to allow schools to give out multiyear scholarships was upheld by razor-thin margins. With 330 institutions voting, 62.12 percent of schools voted in favor of an override of the legislation. Unfortunately for those voting in favor of an overturn, they needed 62.5 percent.

As we found out, that was a difference of just two votes; 37 did not participate.

Among the more notable programs to oppose the legislation included Alabama, Florida State, Texas, USC and Wisconsin. Florida, Michigan and Ohio State supported the proposal.
