Penn State says it is on track to complete most of former FBI director Louis Freeh's 119 recommendations to improve responses to safety and governance in the wake of the Jerry Sandusky child sex abuse scandal.

An update Tuesday on a university website said that more than 70 percent of recommendations were either completed or in the process of completion, with most of the rest ongoing or in progress. The school intends to finish implementing recommendations deemed appropriate by year's end.

The scandal led to landmark NCAA sanctions on the football program. Former Sen. George Mitchell, who is the NCAA's independent athletics integrity monitor, has said the NCAA and Big Ten have allowed the university to bypass five Freeh recommendations that primarily have to do with human resources.
