The NCAA Division I Football Bowl Subdivision Oversight and Football Championship Subdivision Oversight Committee Administrative Subcommittee requested the roster increase, according to Nick Schultz of On3.

The change will mean teams can have more players on rosters leading into this season. Programs could look to the transfer portal more to fill the new holes on the team.

The new ruling will be considered for permanent status later this summer, according to Yahoo! Sports.
