Big Ten, In Addition To The NCAA, To Punish Penn State

On Monday morning, Penn State finds out how severe the punishment will be after the fallout of the Jerry Sandusky child sex-abuse scandal that involved Joe Paterno and several top university administrators.

Stories have already leaked that the school will possibly have to pay a fine between $30 and $60 million, levied by the NCAA, but according to a report in USA Today, the Big 10 Conference could also punish Penn State.

"I think you can expect when the NCAA is ready to talk about what the appropriate actions are with regard to Penn State, that we'll be ready to talk about appropriate actions with regard to the conference as well," said University of Iowa president Sally Mason, chairman of the conference's powerful council of presidents and chancellors.

According to the report, possible punishments against Penn State could include suspending the program, bowl bans, scholarship reduction and redistribution of the school's conference revenue.
