Penn State Scandal: NCAA Imposes Major Sanctions on Football Team

4y ago


In their response to the Penn State football sex abuse scandal, the NCAA handed down major sanctions against the football team, including a 4 year postseason ban, a 5 year probation period, a reduction in scholarships, and the vacating of all wins from 1998 to 2011. The vacated wins will also be reflected in former head coach Joe Paterno's career record, no longer positioning him as the winningest head coach in college football history.
