STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) - NCAA officials say Oklahoma State's football program no longer faces restrictions for the upcoming school year because its Academic Progress Rate has been amended. OSU says that earlier this summer, officials discovered the recent graduation of a student-athlete from the 1990s, which resulted in the addition of a delayed graduation point and pushed the Cowboys above the threshold for restrictions. The program had been facing the loss of a practice day, among other penalties.
