OXFORD, Miss. — Mississippi has self-imposed scholarship reductions in football because of NCAA violations.

The university released its 154-page response Friday to the notice of allegations received in January. The NCAA’s long-running investigation began in 2012 after a university probe discovered academic and recruiting misconduct involving the women’s basketball program. Ole Miss later acknowledged the investigation had spread to the football and track and field programs.

The university’s self-imposed penalties include losing 11 scholarships over four years starting with the most recent recruiting class. The violations include former left tackle Laremy Tunsil’s use of three loaner cars over a six-month period.

The university also has asked to delay a hearing before the Committee on Infractions while it looks into draft-night allegations involving Tunsil.
