Moody's to look at Penn State's credit

by AP posted Jul 24 2012 10:50AM


NEW YORK (AP) - Moody's Investors Service says it may cut its rating on Penn State's credit as the university deals with the fallout from the Jerry Sandusky child sexual-abuse case and sanctions against the school's football team.


The agency has an 'Aa1' rating on Pennsylvania State University's credit. That is its second-highest possible rating. The firm said a recent report by former FBI Director Louis Freeh and sanctions levied by the NCAA could hurt student enrollment and fundraising for the university.


Moody's says Penn State has about $1 billion in debt.


The announcement comes a day after the NCAA fined Penn State $60 million, banned the school from playing in postseason bowl games for four years, and stripped the team of dozens of scholarships.
