The NCAA is the governing body of college football as we know it, although the perception of the strength and integrity of their authority varies depending on who you talk to.

Postseason bans, fines, scholarship reductions and other avenues of punishment have been handed down to USC, Ohio State, Penn State, North Carolina and others. Miami and Oregon are other programs that have been connected to investigations by the NCAA.
