Iowa football programs pass APR

Iowa football programs pass APR

Posted: Updated:
The NCAA released the Academic Progress Reports Wednesday for all of its university athletic programs. The academic progress rate measures eligibility and retention of student-athletes competing on every NCAA Division I sports team.

And the big four universities' football programs in the state of Iowa all passed with flying colors.

Schools needed to achieve an APR score of at least 930 to avoid being penalized by the ncaa.

The University of Iowa football program had the highest score among the state's schools-- with a 969 which is 8 points higher than the Hawkeyes' last report.

Iowa State made the biggest improvement-- the Cyclones scored 948 in the latest progress report which is up 20 points from their last score of 928 which was two points below the NCAA standard.

Northern Iowa achieved a score of 959 which is an eight point improvement from last year.

While Drake scored a 955. Those schools achieving less than the 930 standard could face either a practice reduction, postseason ban or both.
