The Washington football program ranked fourth and Washington State ranked ninth among Pac-12 Conference counterparts in Academic Progress Rate scores released by the NCAA on Wednesday.

The Huskies, with a four-year average of 967, remained above the national average of 951 for football. UW’s APR has increased in each of the past four years, from a low of 946 in 2009-10.

The Cougars posted a two-point increase to 944 over the past year, which ranks below the national average but above the NCAA standard of 930.

Stanford led the Pac-12 in football with a 984, followed by UCLA (979) and Utah (970). Arizona State (941), USC (941) and California (938) were the bottom three teams in the conference.

In men’s basketball, Washington State ranked last in the Pac-12 with an APR of 938. UW, which ranked first in the Pac-12 a year ago with a score of 985, dropped one point to 984, which ranked fourth in the conference for 2012-13. Stanford led the conference with a perfect score of 1,000.

The APR is an annual assessment of each Division I scholarship athlete’s academic progress and retention history. The 930 benchmark equates roughly to a 50 percent graduate rate.

Teams with an APR below 930 are subject to penalty. Nine teams received a postseason ban in football, most notably Idaho and UNLV.

Among major-conference football programs, Oklahoma State was hit hardest after posting a multi-year average of 929.41. The Cowboys will lose two practice hours each week next season.
