  • WACO, TX - The Rutgers University football team has been recognized by the American Football Coaches Association (AFCA) for academic achievement after having a graduation rate of at least 70 percent of its football student-athletes.

    The Scarlet Knights were among 28 teams to receive honorable mention recognition from the AFCA for graduating 70 percent or more of their football student-athletes.

    The overall graduation rate of the 104 schools that responded to the survey was 58 percent, equaling last year’s mark. Fifty of the members responding were above the average and 54 were below the average. The median graduation rate was 57 percent, compared to 57 percent last year and 60 percent two years ago. Southern Methodist won top honors with 100 percent graduation.

    The study involves the freshman class from the academic year of 2000-2001, including those who entered at that time but who did not receive financial aid until after their initial year, or who transferred from another institution and subsequently received a grant-in-aid.
