The Ocean State University softball team has two non-conference makeup games to play due to the severe weather conditions that occurred earlier this month. The team will be participating in its conference tournament in a couple of weeks, which ends the playing season. Can the softball team play the two makeup games after its playing season is over?
No. NCAA Bylaw 17.1.7(a) states that an institution is not permitted to extend the playing season to make up suspended or canceled games (including games that determine a conference champion or the automatic qualifier to the NCAA championship).
