Low APR scores cost Idaho its postseason eligibility
The Idaho Vandals will not be eligible for postseason play in 2014 due to low APR scores.
Since moving up to the FBS level the Idaho Vandals have made two bowl appearances, but no matter what the team does in 2014, it won't be making a third bowl appearance.
Due to low APR (Academic Progress Rate) scores, Idaho will not be eligible for postseason play this season. In addition to losing out on a bowl game, the program will also lose four hours of practice a week. Time that will instead be spent on academics.
"My commitment to education mirrors my commitment to football," said Idaho coach Paul Petrino. "Our players will attend class. They will graduate."
Idaho's APR score in the four-year span of 2009-12 was reportedly 903. A team needs a score of at least 930 over a four-year span, or 940 over a two-year span to maintain postseason eligibility. Petrino says next year's score will be 960.
Idaho is the second team to lose out on the postseason due to low APR scores in 2014. Earlier this month it was announced that UNLV would be ineligible as well.
