The 1992 NCAA Division I-AA football season, part of the college football season, began on September 5, 2007 and concluded on December 19, 1992 in Huntington, West Virginia, where the Marshall Thundering Herd defeated the Youngstown State Penguins to win the NCAA Division I Football Championship.

Notable changes[edit]

The Gateway Collegiate Athletic Conference, otherwise a women's sports league but sponsoring football as its only men's sport since the 1985 collapse of the football side of the Missouri Valley Conference (MVC), merged into the MVC. The football league became the standalone Gateway Football Conference, now known as the Missouri Valley Football Conference.
