The NCAA Football Oversight Committee approved Thursday a six-week plan to gear up for an on-time start to the college football season, according to multiple reports.

The four-phase plan was leaked to 247Sports earlier this week.

The plan will need final approval Wednesday from the NCAA Division I Council. The council is expected to rubber-stamp the plan, paving the way for teams to return to organized team activities in mid-July.

The six-week period of mandatory workouts include walk-throughs in July with coaches and preseason camp beginning in early August. 247Sports obtained a copy of the calendar detailing a return to football after sports were placed on hold in mid-March as the coronavirus pandemic hit the country.

Teams with seasons starting Labor Day Weekend can begin working with their players in person as early as July 13, at least 25 days before the first permissible preseason practice date. Teams participating in Week 0 games will be able to move the proposed dates up one week in the calendar due to games set for late August. Those schools can begin mandatory workouts as early as July 6.
