More and more, it looks like the ramp-up to what officials hope is a full college football season will begin in mid-July.

Yahoo Sports reported last week that the NCAA Division I football oversight committee was leaning toward a six-week preseason camp, about two weeks longer than the normal beginning to the season.

NCAA approval could come the middle of this month, according to Yahoo.
