USC files appeal to NCAA asking for one-year bowl ban

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Southern California filed an appeal with the NCAA on Friday, asking that several sanctions on its football program be reduced because they are “too severe” and “inconsistent with precedent.”
USC appealed only certain aspects of this month’s ruling. Among the penalties were a two-year bowl ban, four years of probation, scholarship losses and removal of several victories. The school will accept a bowl ban for the upcoming season and certain scholarship penalties in football, but believes the full sanctions were unduly harsh.
