OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -- Oklahoma will have its eight wins reinstated from its 2005 Holiday Bowl season.

An NCAA appeals committee partially overturned its ruling in the infractions case involving former quarterback Rhett Bomar.

The NCAA Infractions Appeals Committee says Oklahoma should not have been found guilty of separate violations for failing to detect that football players were working at a Norman car dealership and failing to monitor those students' employment.

The appeals panel Friday partially upheld a "failure to monitor" violation imposed against Oklahoma. The panel says the university didn't use established institutional procedures that would have revealed the employment of 12 players at the dealership in summer 2005.
