(Newser) – The NCAA will require the University of Alabama to vacate at least 10 football victories from 2005-07 over rules violations that saw players arrange free textbooks for friends, the Birmingham News reports. The school will also be placed on 3 years’ probation, but the football program won’t lose any scholarships. Other UA programs received penalties that included vacating individual records.
