Report: NCAA lifts Oklahoma State's APR penalty

Tuesday July 29th, 2014

The NCAA has lifted Oklahoma State football's Academic Progress Rate penalty after receiving updated information, reports Jake Trotter of ESPN

The Cowboys will now be allowed to practice the full 20 hours per week during the upcoming football season. 

In May, it was reported that the team would lose one practice day per week after falling a fraction of a point shy of the minimum APR required by the NCAA. The Cowboys rate was 929.41, and they needed a 929.5 to be rounded up to the minimum of 930.

The score is based on a four-year period of eligibility and retention of scholarship student-athletes.
