The Ocean State University baseball team has two non-conference makeup games to play due to the severe weather conditions that occurred last month. The team will be participating in its conference tournament next month, which ends the playing season. Can the baseball team play the two makeup games after its playing season is over?
No. NCAA Bylaw 17.1.8(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).
