After the seasonEdit

A 31-month-long investigation by the NCAA discovered that 31 ineligible athletes in various sports were fielded in several different sports programs at Arkansas State. As a result, four of the 2005 football season wins and all six of the 2006 season wins were vacated as self-imposed penalties by Arkansas State University.[1]
