The NCAA has released APR scores for the 2010-11 seasons and the Ohio State football team checks in with a 988, the third-highest score in all of FBS.
It's chest-thumping time -- here's a short list of schools that Ohio State topped with their football APR scores: Princeton (987), Harvard (985), Columbia (984), Vanderbilt (978), Stanford (977), and the U.S. Naval Academy (973).
Northwestern led all schools, FBS or otherwise, with a score of 995, while Duke and Boise State tied for second among FBS schools with scores of 989. Rounding out the Big Ten were Wisconsin (975), Penn State (971), Indiana (964), Illinois (953), Purdue (950), Iowa (949), Michigan, the Harvard of the West (943), Michigan State (943) and Minnesota (932).
Taking realignment into account, the Big Ten led all conferences with an average football score of 960.75. The ACC had an average score of 959.64, the SEC averaged 956.50, the Big 12 finished with 951.50 and the Pac-12 scored an average of 949.42 across its 12 football teams.
In other sports, women's volleyball, women's tennis, men's volleyball and men's tennis all posted perfect scores of 1,000. Softball scored a 995, women's basketball and men's ice hockey a 993 and the men's basketball team finished with a score of 962, marking the fifth-straight year the team has improved its score. Congratulations are clearly in order for the Student-Athlete Support Services Office.
Because of low APR scores, the men's basketball teams at UCONN and Toledo will face postseason ineligibility for the 2012-13 season.
