NCAA takes away five scholarships from Zips football as academic punishment

By mrasor Published: May 6, 2008

Football
The Zips lost five scholarships as a result of failing to meet the NCAA's Academic Progress Rate requirements.
Three other MAC football teams also suffered a penalty (Buffalo, Toledo and Temple).
No team can be penalized more than 10 percent of its scholarship base. Akron will get 80 instead of the required 85 for the next recruiting season.
No Zips team earned a Public Recognition Award.
