The NCAA released its most recent Academic Progress Rate scores on Wednesday measuring the academic progress of Division I athletes.
Idaho and UNLV are among the nine football teams barred from participating in the 2014-15 postseason after posting substandard scores. Oklahoma State narrowly avoided the same penalty. In all, 36 Division I teams will be ineligible to compete after this fall’s regular season because of deficient APR performance.
The most recent APRs are multi-year rates based on the rates of the past four academic years (2009-10, 2010-11, 2011-12 and 2012-13). Teams must have APRs of 930, up from 900 last season, or an average of 940 over the previous two years, to avoid a postseason ban. Some programs that fell below 930, including Oklahoma State, incurred other penalties, such as practice restrictions.Duke Northwestern Wisconsin Utah State Boise State
