KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Tennessee's football program has improved its academic progress to the point that it won't face punishment from the NCAA.
Figures released by the NCAA on Wednesday showed Tennessee's football program with a four-year total of 932 in the Academic Progress Rate, which the NCAA uses as a real-time academic measure of every Division I team. The four-year period covers the 2009-10 to 2012-13 academic years.
Tennessee's football APR solely for 2012-13 was 962, the highest score in program history.
Tennessee needed a four-year APR of at least 930 to avoid potential punishment.
Other programs in the state are facing penalties. The East Tennessee State men's indoor track program faces a 2014-15 postseason ban. The UT Martin men's basketball team faces a "Level One" penalty that generally focuses on practice restrictions.
