ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - A spokesman for the University of Central Florida says the NCAA is set to hear its appeal of a one-year postseason ban in football.
Grant Heston said Wednesday that UCF President John Hitt, athletic director Todd Stansbury and others will attend the hearing at NCAA headquarters in Indianapolis on Thursday.
It is the lone penalty UCF challenged as part of sanctions levied last July for major recruiting violations in football and basketball. UCF also received a one-year postseason ban in basketball, $50,000 fine, five years' probation, reduction of basketball scholarships and limits on football recruiting.
UCF's appeal allowed it to participate in postseason play in 2012. The Knights finished 10-4, defeating Ball State in the Beef O'Brady's Bowl.
UCF moves to the Big East Conference in all sports next season.
