The Daily Fantasy Sports website Boom Fantasy has announced it will be offering DFS contests for the College Football bowl season.

Boom Fantasy apparently did not get the memo from the NCAA, which has pressured sites the likes of DraftKings and FanDuel not to allow contests on College Football.

It appears to be the only DFS platform doing so, other than FanPicks, according to Legal Sports Report.

Boom Fantasy explained their position:

The Fantasy Sports Trade Association has always maintained that college sports are fair game for fantasy sports. FanDuel and DraftKings offered real-money fantasy contests based on NCAA events for years, only removing them for lobbying/political purposes.

The College Football contests are slated to be offered starting December 28.
