How much money will conferences make from the College Football Playoff this year? Can Leonard Fournette fetch a historic amount for his game-worn jersey at auction?

Travel Stipends for NCAA Final Fours and College Football Playoff a Huge Success

Last year, the NCAA did something unprecedented: they approved a pilot program to provide travel stipends to the parents or guardians of men’s and women’s basketball student athletes participating in the Final Four (up to $3,000 per student athlete) and National Championship (an additional $1,000 per student athlete).
