    State University Spending Up to $60,000 on Football Investigation

    A state university in western Pennsylvania says it's hired a Kansas firm to review its troubled football program.

    California University of Pennsylvania said Wednesday it'll pay the Compliance Group up to $60,000 to conduct a review spurred by the arrests of six players in a beating outside an off-campus restaurant and other off-field issues.

    The university says it expects the review to be finished by next summer.

    It'll focus on supervision and oversight of the Division II football program, the squad's emphasis on values and connection to the campus community and recruiting practices.

    The six players have been ordered to stand trial in the Oct. 30 beating. Prosecutors say they yelled "Football strong!" as they drove away.

    California forfeited its next game and the school suspended the players.
