The NCAA has come down with two groundbreaking rule changes that take effect this season.
Division I football players can now participate in up to four games in a season without losing a year of eligibility. This new rule allows players to preserve a season of competition if, for example, injuries or other factors result in them playing in a few games.
Nebraska head football coach Scott Frost voiced his support for the redshirt rule change several times in the spring.
The other rule change is all college athletes will no longer need permission from their coach or school to transfer and receive financial aid from another school.
While Frost is hesitant to open up transfer rules entirely, he had stated a couple times that hes in favor of athletes having a few more rights when it comes to choosing the right school.
Division I student-athletes will now have five years to compete in up to four seasons of competition.
