STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) - Oklahoma State says Sports Illustrated has informed the school that it plans to publish a series of articles about alleged misconduct in the university's football program starting in 2001.
The university said in a statement Saturday that Sports Illustrated outlined allegations involving inappropriate activities and actions, the majority of which occurred between 2001 and 2007.
The university says it has contacted the NCAA about the allegations.
The school did not describe the allegations in its statement Saturday. It says Sports Illustrated didn't provide all of the specifics of the accusations.
University President Burns Hargis said the school is troubled by the claims and will investigate.
