HARRISBURG, Pa. -

Five members of Pennsylvania's delegation to the United States House of Representatives are asking college sports' governing body to cancel penalties against Penn State, which were imposed as a result of the Jerry Sandusky child molestation scandal.

The five lawmakers have released a letter they sent last week to Mark Emmert, president of the NCAA.

They're citing an April state court ruling that was critical of the consent decree, which includes a temporary ban on post-season play, a temporary reduction in scholarships, the cancellation of 112 wins and a $60 million fine.

The group includes four Republicans -- Charlie Dent, Glenn Thompson, Jim Gerlach and Mike Kelly -- plus Democrat Mike Doyle.

Dent, Doyle and Thompson are Penn State alumni.

An NCAA spokeswoman said the organization hasn't received the letter and isn't commenting beyond its previous statements.
