Report compares drug policies of BCS football programs

By Michael Rothstein

After almost every game and intermittently throughout the year, college athletes are subjected to drug testing. The policies vary from school to school and conference to conference.

AOL Fanhouse writer Brett McMurphy dug through almost every BCS football program to find out what each school recommends and what they mandate.

Among the schools complying with the story was Michigan, which has no minimum suspension for a first positive test, a 10 percent of games suspension for a second test and a year-long suspension for a third positive test.

The no minimum suspension for a first positive test was uniform throughout the Big Ten.

Wonder where the rest of the schools stack up? Check out the rest of McMurphy's story.
