Longhorn foe penalized for APR

Posted May 14th, 2014


While the Texas football team earned a 1,000 on its APR, Big 12 rival Oklahoma State got punished for its low scores.

The Cowboys will lose one practice a week _ or a two-hour session _ for this season because it’s rolling, four-year APR fell below 930.

Oklahoma State’s average was 929.41. Its average for the past two years was 943.54.  According to the NCAA, teams must earn a minimum of 940 for a two-year average or 930 for four years to qualify for a post-season bowl.


“We are taking steps to ensure that our APR numbers improve moving forward,” Oklahoma State athletic director Mike Holder said in a statement issued to the media. “We are accountable for what we do and ultimately, we are here to serve our student-athletes and do our best to keep them on track to be lifelong contributors to society.”

The scores for the past four years are 916 in 2009-10, 915 in 2010-11, 953 in 2011-12 and 934 in 2012-13.
