Boise State to appeal part of NCAA violations



BOISE, Idaho (AP) — Boise State will appeal the additional sanctions the NCAA committee on infraction imposed on its football program.

Boise State announced its decision late Tuesday afternoon. The school said it has informed the NCAA of its intentions to appeal.

The Broncos are specifically appealing additional punishment given to the football program. Boise State had implemented self-imposed sanctions in its official response to the NCAA that included reduced scholarships for one year and limited fewer preseason practices.

The NCAA added scholarship reductions from 85 to 82 through the 2014 school year and limited contact during spring practice.
