Jerry Sandusky may not be the only one found guilty. Penn State University says it will provide the information the NCAA is demanding within days—which could lead to a shutdown of the school’s beloved football program if the university is found at fault. The Department of Education is also investigating Penn State with a probe into whether the university violated federal campus-safety law. Officials are looking into whether the university’s response to Sandusky ignored the Clery Act, which requires schools to provide public-safety alerts and annual disclosure of crime stats. Federal officials are declining to comment on the scope of the investigation, which spans 13 years.
