THE NCAA yesterday placed Boise State on probation for 3 years and imposed other sanctions for major violations by the football program and other sports. The sanctions included a public reprimand, a 1-year postseason ban for women's tennis and recruiting restrictions and scholarship reductions for affected sports. Some of the penalties had previously been self-imposed by the university. Boise State's football program will be able to offer nine fewer scholarships through the 2013-14 season.

BOISE STATE isn't only making money as it climbs up the college football food chain. The school is also making enemies. At a meeting with the Idaho Statesman editorial board, Boise State president Bob Kustra got all fired up when asked about the University of Idaho, whose fans apparently don't get all warm and fuzzy when Boise State shows up to play. "[University of Idaho has] a culture that is nasty, inebriated and civilly doesn't give our fans the respect that any fan should expect when visiting an away game," the prez said.

Kellen Moore threw two short touchdown passes to Tommy Gallarda, and No. 5 Boise State survived a late scare from Tulsa to escape with a 28-21 victory last night in one of the last road tests standing between the undefeated Broncos and the BCS. With Boise State (6-0) trailing for the first time all season, Moore was perfect on two scoring drives to put the Broncos ahead to stay. Tulsa (4-2) got within 28-21 in the fourth quarter when G.J. Kinne and Slick Shelley connected on consecutive passes for 91 yards, including a 55-yarder for a touchdown.

THE BIG EAST IS considering adding Boise State football to help bolster the conference's chances of retaining its BCS automatic bid, though both sides still need to be convinced it's the right move. A college football official, who spoke yesterday to the Associated Press on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to discuss the Big East's plans, says some Big East presidents are resisting adding Boise State, and the school itself has reservations about joining a conference in flux.

BOISE, Idaho - The Idaho State Board of Education has given Boise State permission to pursue membership with the Big East Conference, a move that would mean more revenue and give the Broncos a clear path to the Bowl Championship Series. The board voted 7-1 Thursday to give university President Bob Kustra the authority to move Boise State's football program out of the Mountain West Conference and into the Big East for the 2013 season. Kustra has had discussions with Big East representatives, including during a campus visit by conference leaders last week.

Pokey Allen, who returned from a bout with cancer to coach the Boise State football team, resigned yesterday after learning that the cancer has returned. Allen, 53, made the announcement following a CAT scan on Tuesday that revealed cancer cells are once again active. Small tumors on his lungs that had not increased in size since early August had grown significantly in the past month. Boise State athletic director Gene Bleymaier said Allen would be reassigned to other duties in the school's athletic department, and a search would begin for a replacement.

The NCAA has accused Boise State of committing one major violation and a series of infractions over a 5-year period in its football program and four other sports. An inquiry by NCAA investigators also concluded the scope and nature of the 22 violations show Boise State lacked the institutional controls to fully comply with critical rules in collegiate athletics, according to a report made public by the school and NCAA late Monday. The violations range from coaches organizing low-cost summer housing and transportation for potential Broncos football players to tennis and track-and-field athletes getting meals and housing in violation of NCAA rules.

The Big East may be trying a Hail Mary pass to save its standing as a viable football entity worth something to television networks and capable of keeping its Bowl Championship Series status. If the pass is completed, Temple and Villanova could be part of the league. The Boston Globe reported Sunday that Boise State has been discussed as a football-only member. Meanwhile, Air Force athletic director Hans Mueh told the Denver Post Saturday: "Our interest is high in the Big East.

Weber State - one of those teams nobody hears about until NCAA Tournament time - scored just eight field goals in 40 minutes Saturday, but managed to nip Boise State, 45-39, to climb to 12-2. Weber State shot 29 more free throws than the visitors. "I'm sick of it," said Boise coach Bobby Dye, of the one-sided officiating. "It's been three years of this. I'd like somebody to know we're in this conference (Big Sky) too, not just a team passing through. " Montana (11-5)

IT'S CHAMPIONSHIP weekend, finally. The closing photo op for any team that's still in contention for one of the four spots in the first FBS playoff, where the most pertinent quandary seems to be whether there's any scenario in which the selection committee would actually find a way to leave out defending national champion Florida State - the lone unbeaten and winner of 28 straight - even if it wins yet one more of those too-close games against four-point...

SO NOW, we're down to six. As in unbeatens. And in reality, it's five, since Marshall and that Conference USA pedigree doesn't figure to earn an invitation to the first four-team playoff. Although sometimes you never know. Soon, you'll be down to at least four, for sure, since Notre Dame plays at Florida State on Saturday. As long as 17-point underdog Tennessee doesn't pull off an upset at Mississippi, two will be from the same state. Only it's not Alabama. Who had that exacta at the Caesars Palace sports book?

THE NCAA OFTEN gets it wrong. This time, it got it right. The oft-maligned organization yesterday granted permission for Boise State to provide assistance to Antoine Turner, a homeless football recruit who graduates from Fullerton Junior College next week. Turner will be allowed to live in a dorm on the Idaho campus at the end of the month instead of waiting until the beginning of the first summer session. In addition to a full scholarship, he will receive a meal plan and his books and fees will be covered.

La Salle looked like the Explorers of last March during Sunday's 71-63 win at St. Joseph's. "I think it was our best game," La Salle coach John Giannini said. The Explorers hope that momentum carries into the Atlantic Ten tournament. Unlike last year, when La Salle lost its lone Atlantic Ten tournament game to Butler but still received a bid to the NCAA tournament, this season's team has no margin for error. La Salle (15-15) likely has to run the table, winning four games in four days to return to the NCAAs after last year's Sweet 16 run. The A-10 tournament will begin Thursday at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, and No. 8-seeded La Salle will plays a familiar foe in the noon opener, No. 9 St. Bonaventure.

The Gators bounced back from a buzzer-beater loss at No. 9 Connecticut last week and extended their home winning streak to 21 games. Wilbekin, who injured his right ankle against the Huskies eight days ago, made 7 of 12 shots and added six assists. Freshman Andrew Wiggins led the Jayhawks (6-3) with 26 points and 11 rebounds - his first double-double and both career highs.

Whatever happens in Chip Kelly's debut as Eagles coach on Monday night, it likely won't be worse than his first game as head coach at Oregon. It was Sept. 3, 2009, a Thursday night contest in front of a national audience on the blue turf at Boise State. Kelly was a relatively unknown career assistant who took the reins of one of the nation's most visible programs. His celebrated offense sputtered in a 19-8 loss to the Broncos. After the game, Oregon running back LeGarrette Blount punched a Boise State player.

THE NAME Adam "Pacman" Jones always comes up when the conversation centers around athletes who are in trouble with the law. Jones, now with the Cincinnati Bengals, was arrested at least eight times from July 2005 to July 2011, and had numerous other run-ins with the law. The bar for unlawful off-the-field behavior might have been reset by free-agent receiver Titus Young. Early Saturday morning, the troubled 23-year-old Young was arrested for the third time in 6 days, including twice on the same day. Young was arrested and charged with suspicion of burglary, assaulting a police officer and resisting arrest after police responded to a 911 burglary call from a house in San Clemente, Calif., Orange County Sheriff's Department spokesman Lt. Joe Balicki told NFL.com yesterday.

LOS ANGELES - La Salle assistant Horace "Pappy" Owens was the city Player of the Year at Dobbins Tech in 1979 when he averaged 29.3 points. That spring, he got a very close look at what he thinks is the closest Big 5 parallel to what La Salle has done so far in this NCAA Tournament - the Penn team that went all the way to the Final Four. It was the first year of seeding, and Penn was a No. 9 that, like La Salle this year, had to play its way into the main bracket. Now it is 64 teams, then only 32. Penn beat Iona in an 8-9 game, just as La Salle beat Boise State in a 13-13 game.
