The NCAA is handing down an expensive punishment to the University of Colorado for inadvertently undercharging student-athletes for meals.

NCAA officials says 133 people were undercharged a total of $61,700 over six academic years.

The infractions committee says the violations are considered "major."

CU was placed on two years' probation; fined $100,000, to be paid to a hunger- or homeless-relief charity; and ordered to cut one football scholarship for the next three seasons.

The NCAA says the university's athletic staff discovered and promptly reported the violations.

The impermissible benefits were for walk-on student-athletes from the 2000-to-2001 season through the 2005-to-2006 season.

The NCAA says Colorado failed to monitor training table regulations adequately.
