Big Ten Imposes Own Sanctions On Penn State

The Big Ten Conference is imposing its own sanctions on Penn State University, in addition to the fines and other punishments handed down by the NCAA because of the Jerry Sandusky sex abuse coverup. 


The conference says Penn State is on probation and will have to forfeit its share of the conference’s bowl game earnings… an estimated $13 million over the next four years.  The Big Ten says the money will go to programs that benefit child abuse victims in cities where Big Ten schools are located… like Champaign-Urbana. 


The conference reportedly considered kicking Penn State out of the Big Ten completely, but ultimately decided against it.
