The NCAA has placed Boise State on probation for three years, while imposing other sanctions Tuesday, for major violations by the football program and other sports.

Under the sanctions, Boise State’s football program will be able to offer nine fewer scholarships through the 2013-14 season, which is six fewer than Boise State’s self-imposed sanctions announced earlier this year. The football team will also be allowed fewer contact practices during spring training for three years.

The sanctions included a public reprimand, a one-year postseason ban for women’s tennis and recruiting restrictions and scholarship reductions for affected sports. Boise State will also be prohibited for two years from recruiting international student-athletes for cross country and track and field, as well as women’s tennis.

The NCAA said the case included numerous major violations involving more than 75 prospects and student-athletes in five sports.

“The committee concluded that a competitive advantage was gained in most instances,” said Conference USA Commissioner Britton Banowsky, a member of the NCAA infractions committee who reviewed the case.
