BOISE, Idaho >> The NCAA placed Boise State on probation for three years and imposed other sanctions Tuesday for major violations by the football program and other sports.
The sanctions included a public reprimand, a one-year postseason ban for women’s tennis and recruiting restrictions and scholarship reductions. Some of the penalties had previously been self-imposed by the university.
Boise State’s football program will be able to offer three fewer scholarships each year, from 85 to 82, through the 2013-14 season. The football team will also be allowed fewer contact practices during spring training for three years.
