Interesting. Mizzou had a five point increase. I wonder which school improved the most?

MU football APR among leaders in Big 12, SEC

For the second year in a row, Missouri’s football team led the Big 12 Conference with the highest Academic Progress Rate score. Every Division I sports team calculates its APR each year based on the eligibility and retention of each scholarship athlete. Teams that score below certain standards face sanctions. Rates are based on the past four years’ performance, and the latest scores measure four academic years ending with 2010-11.

Missouri football’s score of 972 was a five-point increase from the previous season. Only nine teams from public universities in the Football Bowl Subdivision posted a higher APR than Missouri: Ohio State, Northern Illinois, Middle Tennessee State, Clemson, Rutgers, Wisconsin, Central Florida, Georgia Tech and TCU. Florida also scored 972. Only one team from the Southeastern Conference, MU’s new league starting July 1, posted a higher score, Vanderbilt at 978.

Here are the most recent APR scores for football programs in both the Big 12 and the SEC. (Because the scores were for the 2010-11 academic year, former Big 12 members were still grouped with the Big 12.)
