Changes for UI and ISU Athletes
Updated: Thursday, July 24 2014, 07:44 AM CDT
DES MOINES, IA (CBS2/FOX28) - Big changes are coming for Iowa college athletes.
The Des Moines Register reports that starting august 1st players will be getting unlimited free food.
The NCAA is now allowing Division I schools to provide unlimited meals and snacks to all athletes.
Previously, athletes either got three meals a day, or a stipend, but now they'll be getting all the free food they want.
At Iowa, the athletics department estimates the cost will be more than half a million dollars per year, at ISU, they expect to spend about $400,000.
That money will come out of the athletics departments budgets.
