For Division 1A, 85 players may be on scholarship. For Division 1AA, 63 players.
In Division 1a, 119 times approximately 125 (85 scholarship/balance non-scholarship) = 14,875.
Division I-FBS (formerly Division 1-A) football programs are allowed to have 85 players on scholarship. The NCAA does not mandate that all 85 scholarships are "full" scholarships, although in practice it makes little sense to give a "half" or "fractional" scholarship since the rules govern number of players receiving a scholarship rather than the number of full scholarships. In Division I-FCS (formerly Division 1-AA), programs are allowed 63 "equivalencies," meaning that they can give more than 63 players a scholarship as long as those scholarships do not total more than the equivalent of 63 full scholarships. Division II programs are allowed 36 "equivalencies," and Division III are allowed zero (Division III sports are non-scholarship).
There are currently four NCAA divisions for college football. Division I-FBS allows 85 total players to receive a scholarship. In practice, all 85 players receive a full scholarship that completely pays for the players' college education. Division I-FCS allows 63 full scholarships, but these may be divided among any number of players (or 63 scholarship equivalencies). Division II allows 36 full scholarship equivalencies. Division III does not allow athletic scholarships. The NAIA also sponsors football in a single division. The NAIA allows 24 scholarship equivalencies. The are several other small organizing bodies, and scholarships vary widely between these organizations (although none exceed 24 equivalencies).

NCAA Division 1 men's basketball teams are limited to 13 scholarship players each academic year(NCAA Bylaw 184.108.40.206). My research has yet to lead me to an NCAA limit on TOTAL D1 MBB roster sizes, but the 2013-14 Kansas Jayhawks roster had 18 players on it (13 scholarship and 5 walk-on players).
i believe around 56
There was, but after losing a lawsuit, the NCAA agreed to let players of any age play football in any division.
I think the average would be around 125.
There are three divisions, Division I, Division II and Division III. Not all divisions sponsor all sports. For instance, ice hockey is not sponsored by the NCAA in Division II. Member institutions at the Division II level who sponsor the sport participate at the Division I or Division III level. Division I is also subdivided in the sport of football. Previously known as Division I-A and Division I-AA, the subdivisions are now referred to the Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS) and Football Championship Subdivision (FCS, respectively. The two major differences between the subdivisions are scholarship levels (FBS allows a total of 85 players to receive any level of scholarship while the FCS allows 63 full scholarship equivalents that may be divided between more than 63 players) and championship sponsorship. In the FBS, the NCAA does not sponsor a championship. For instance, Florida State won the "national championship" following the 2013 season, but Florida State is not "NCAA champions" in football. In the FCS, the NCAA sponsors a tournament to determine the national champion. Following the 2013 season, North Dakota State won the tournament and can claim both the title of "national champion" and "NCAA champion."
