NCAA cuts Oklahoma State's practice time

The Oklahoma State football program will lose one day of practice time per week this upcoming season because of a low Academic Progress Rate score, the school said in a news release Wednesday.

The NCAA requires teams to earn a 930 four-year average to avoid practice restrictions. Oklahoma State's average is 929.41. A school spokesman said if the score had reached 929.50, it would have been rounded up and the Cowboys would have avoided the penalty.

A normal practice week is 20 hours over six days. The standard penalty for the violation is a limitation to 16 hours over five days, but the spokesman said the school will have 18 hours over five days because it made a successful appeal based on being so close to the required score.
