The NCAA said its Board of Governors is supporting a plan that will allow athletes to earn money for their names, images and likenesses without involvement from the NCAA, schools or conferences.

The proposed rule changes will still have to be voted on by NCAA membership at the next convention in January, and the NCAA said it will ask Congress to help keep states from passing their own compensation laws and to come up with a national standard.
