The NCAA will release updated APR scores next week for Division 1 programs next week, but one thing that has been confirmed is Duke will remain the only FBS program to receive the Public Recognition Award each year the NCAA has awarded it. Duke is one of nine football programs to be recognized for APR achievements, scoring in the top 10 percent of their sport.
“Each year, more and more teams are achieving perfect APR scores,” said NCAA president Mark Emmert. “We are proud of our member schools’ commitment to providing tremendous opportunities for student-athletes so they can succeed on the field, in the classroom, and in life.”
The eight other football programs to win the Public Recognition Award each year are Brown, Cornell, Dartmouth, Davidson, Dayton, Pennsylvania, Princeton and Yale.
Low APR scores will cost Idaho and UNLV postseason eligibility this upcoming season, and there is a thought more teams could be stripped of postseason eligibility. The most recent APR scores will be released on May 14.
