Push for 12-game FCS season may return

(STATS) - A proposal to increase the length of the FCS regular season was sacked last week, but the decision didn't necessarily occur on fourth down.

The commissioners of the Ohio Valley and Southland conferences that co-sponsored the legislation for the NCAA Division I Council meetings in Indianapolis were encouraged by fellow conference support for the defeated move to go from 11 permanent regular-season games to 12.

FCS conferences voted 8-5 against the proposal, according to Southland commissioner Tom Burnett, who added the issue could be reviewed again in the future.
