The good news keeps coming for the Penn State football program.
The Big Ten Council of Presidents and Chancellors announced Sunday that it had voted to end Penn State’s bowl revenue ban, imposed after the Jerry Sandusky scandal in November 2011, a year early. That means Penn State will receive its $4.5 million conference bowl revenue share for the 2014-15 this year.
Penn State already had its bowl ban, which was scheduled to expire in 2016, lifted last year. The Nittany Lions beat Boston College in the Pinstripe Bowl in December. The program now also has its full allotment of 85 scholarships, which initially wasn’t supposed to happen until 2016.
