The NCAA will announce Thursday that the Alabama football team must vacate all wins in 2005 through 2007 that included players involved in violations of textbook disbursement policy, a person with knowledge of the ruling said.
That number is at least 10, another source said. Alabama will not have to give up its 2007 win over Tennessee or its bowl win that season.
The ruling, which will be announced to the public Thursday, also includes the NCAA placing Alabama on three more years of probation, and Alabama will pay a fine.
The penalties do not include scholarship losses for football, the sources said.
Several other sports received more significant penalties than the football program, including vacating individual records, the sources said.
UA officials were informed of the ruling on Wednesday, but NCAA rules prohibit them from speaking publicly about it.
