The NCAA released its annual APR scores today, and Cal’s football team had another strong showing. The Bears had an APR of 969, which puts the team in the 80th-90th percentile nationally. The mark also is second in the Pac-10 behind Stanford.
The APR is a measure of academic progress used by the NCAA to monitor the status of athletic programs. Sports must have a minimum APR of 925 to avoid certain penalties, such as loss of scholarships.
