The NCAA has imposed severe sanctions on Penn State in light of the child abuse scandal and alleged cover-up that has rocked the university and its football program.

In September 2013, the NCAA said it is gradually restoring scholarships to the Penn State University football team that were originally lost. The restoration will mean that Penn State's football team will get five more scholarships next year, and 10 more each of the following three seasons. By the start of the 2016 season, Penn State will again have the full amount of scholarships.
