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.
