Boise State officials are imposing cuts in football scholarships and practices over the next two seasons and
additional sanctions in men's and women's tennis and track and field for a series of NCAA violations.
An NCAA inquiry identified 22 infractions made by coaching staffs in those sports from 2005-10.
A report claims Bronco football coaches arranged for cheap housing, transportation and meals during summer workouts for potential players.
The most serious allegation is lodged against the women's tennis coach, accused of giving a recruit benefits
before she was enrolled then lying to investigators.
University officials have eliminated three one-year scholarships for football players in 2011 and 2012.
They have also dropped three football practices before the 2011 opener against Georgia and the 2012 season opener against Michigan State.
