The infraction involves the game participation of two players during February of 2002 before they had been certified to compete by the university. The players were not academically ineligible; however, they had not been certified at the time of their participation. Both players did eventually receive certification and were eligible to compete last season.
The secondary infraction was self-reported by LSU to the Southeastern Conference office.
