Students could get a pay-out for lost teaching time at university – how would it work?

University students who’ve had their teaching disrupted due to coronavirus could receive compensation, after the higher education watchdog instructed a university to pay-out.

The Office of the Independent Adjudicator (OIA) told one university to pay £1000 to an international student who had lost out, according to a case summary published by the OIA.

Students all over the country have had their university experience disrupted by the pandemic, with thousands signing petitions and protesting against their treatment.

While the OIA is currently only processing around 200 complaints, many more are expected once they have gone through each universities’ internal process.

Who can claim?

While every student has faced some general disruption due to the events of this year, it’s likely that only those who have missed out on a lot of in-person teaching time, such as those on

Notre Dame running back Kyren Williams (23) celebrates with offensive lineman Robert Hainsey after a touchdown in the first overtime against Clemson at Notre Dame Stadium.

This year’s process will be different. The initial release comes three weeks later than usual with conferences delaying their schedules. There will be three more Tuesday night rankings in December before the final release Sunday, Dec. 20 that will decide the four teams in the playoff.

The varying starts for conferences have placed an additional burden on the committee with some contenders playing as many as eight games while Ohio State and Oregon only taking the field four and three times, respectively.

When are the College Football Playoff rankings released? Time, channel for first CFP selection show in 2020

The winding, halting 2020 college football season has brought us just hours away from the first set of College Football Playoff rankings.

What will that top four look like? The top three teams will assuredly consist of some ordering of Alabama, Notre Dame and Ohio State, all of whom are undefeated and have beaten top-five opponents this season. It’s the fourth spot where the Playoff committee must make some tough decisions.

Will it go with 7-1 Clemson, which lost an overtime thriller without Trevor Lawrence to Notre Dame earlier this year? That would set the ACC championship game up as a potential Playoff play-in game, though it’s worth wondering whether the Irish could get in if they split with the Tigers. The other likely candidate at No. 4 is 6-1 Florida, whose only defeat this year is to one-loss Texas A&M and who seems destined for a collision with Alabama

Arizona-Washington live stream (11/21): How to watch college football online, TV, time

Washington (1-0) hosts Arizona on Saturday, Nov. 21, and the game will be live streamed on fuboTV.

Washington’s one scheduled crossover game with the Pac-12 South may test just how much the Huskies are willing to play a ground-and-pound style of offense. A week ago, the Wildcats allowed 173 yards rushing to Southern California in their opener, but gave up 325 yards through the air.

The Wildcats (0-1) nearly had an equally big celebration after their opener. A decided underdog, Arizona took the lead twice over USC in the fourth quarter, including on Grant Gunnell’s 6-yard TD pass to Stanley Berryhill III with 1:35 remaining. But the Wildcats defense couldn’t withstand USC’s fourth-quarter surge and gave up the winning touchdown with 25 seconds left.

Arizona has lost eight straight dating back to last year, a skid that started with a 51-27 loss to Washington in Tucson.

The game is set to kick off at 6:30 p.m. Central (7:30 p.m. ET) and will be live streamed by fuboTV, which is offering a 7-day free trial. SEC Network is televising the game.

No. 4 Clemson-Florida State live stream (11/21): How to watch college football online, TV, time

Update: Saturday’s Clemson-Florida State football game has been postponed due to COVID-19 concerns, the ACC office announced on Saturday morning.

If there are questions about the No. 4 Clemson Tigers heading into their game with Florida State on Saturday, Nov. 21, it is about the defense. The game will be live streamed on fuboTV.

Clemson defensive coordinator Brent Venables knows what great defenses look like. He hasn’t seen that yet from his latest group of Tigers.

The fourth-ranked Tigers (7-1, 6-1 Atlantic Coast Conference) will try and suffocate struggling Florida State (2-6, 1-6) on Saturday.

On this team, Venables sees the cracks that have come from injuries and not enough playmaking. Clemson is 13th overall nationally, yielding 301 yards a game and ranks 24th in both passing yards and rushing yards allowed.

The Tigers gave up just 60 points total their first five games and 102 combined in their last
