 A West Virginia football player is suing the NCAA and five major conferences, alleging they have violated antitrust laws by agreeing to cap the value of an athletic scholarship at less than the actual cost of attendance.
The lawsuit was filed Wednesday in federal court in San Francisco. Lead attorneys Steve Berman and Bruce Simon also have been involved in cases challenging the NCAA's ability to sell college athletes' likeness to video-game makers.
The proposed class-action lawsuit seeks to represent former Football Bowl Subdivision scholarship players who have played since February 2010.
The lawsuit said former West Virginia player Shawne Alston had to take out a $5,500 loan to cover the difference between his scholarship and actual costs of attendance.
Spokeswoman Stacey Osburn said the NCAA had no immediate comment.
