With Academic Progress Rate up, Morgan State football regains postseason eligibility

A year after being banned from NCAA postseason play, the Morgan State football team regained its eligibility by posting a satisfactory multiyear Academic Progress Rate, the NCAA announced Wednesday.

The Bears' APR score of 829 during the 2014-15 academic year was 100 points lower than the school's score 11 years ago, but the score rose to 853 for the 2015-16 year and the program can now participate in the postseason.

The team also regains the four hours of practice time and one day of practice per week during the season that it lost last year. The team will get back four hours of practice time out of season and can return to football workouts in the spring.
