/> The scores are tallied by giving teams one point for each athlete who stays in school and another point for each athlete who stays academically eligible.

The point totals are then divided by the team's maximum points possible to derive a score equivalent to a percentage.

The APR is a four-year look at graduation rates culminating with the 2006-07 academic year. If a team's APR falls below the 925 mark, a team could lose scholarships.

Kansas' football team lost two scholarships for having an APR score of 919.

The rest of the Big 12 fared like this: Nebraska (941), Missouri (939), Baylor (938), Kansas State (935), Oklahoma State (935), Texas A&M (932), Colorado (929), Texas Tech (928) and Iowa State (927).

Among schools from BCS conferences, no school was hit like Washington State. The Cougar football team, which lost eight scholarships, scored a 916 on the four-year, rolling calculation.

First-year coach Paul Wulff will have his work cut out for him correcting the mess left by Bill Doba.
