The NCAA released its latest academic progress rate (APR) scores Wednesday, and the Big Ten received favorable results. Not only did all 12 Big Ten football and men's basketball teams avoid penalty, Northwestern football compiled the highest score in the FBS. See how Big Ten football and men's hoops teams did in this post.

For a point of reference, any score of 930 or below results in penalty, ranging from scholarship reductions to a postseason ban.
