Big Ten to review Penn State, possibly impose sanctions

The Big Ten Council of Presidents/Chancellors said Thursday it will review the child sex-abuse scandal at Penn State and possibly impose sanctions on the school depending on what it finds.

Former assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky is facing more than 50 charges of sexually assaulting children. Sandsuky was arrested Wednesday and charged with 12 new counts involving two new alleged victims.

The Big Ten said it wants to specifically investigate into “matters of institutional control, ethical conduct and/or other compliance-related issues” at Penn State.

The latest accusers are the ninth and 10th alleged victims to come forward and told the grand jury they met Sandusky through his charity — the Second Mile.
