ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - The NCAA has granted Central Florida's appeal of a one-year postseason ban in football.
The decision was announced Monday, which will make it bowl-eligible as it moves into the American Athletic Conference this season.
In a release the NCAA wrote that its Committee on Infractions ``determined the football postseason ban is excessive such that it constitutes an abuse of discretion.''
UCF's was originally issued the ban as part of sanctions levied last July for major recruiting violations in football and basketball. It also received a one-year postseason ban in basketball, $50,000 fine, five years' probation, reduction of basketball scholarships, and limits on football recruiting.
The postseason ban was the lone penalty UCF appealed and allowed the Knights to participate in the Beef O'Brady's Bowl in 2012.
