HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) -- Sixteen Pennsylvania congressmen are demanding the NCAA release all documents related to a 2012 consent decree that required Penn State to pay $60 million and imposed a football bowl ban and other penalties over the Jerry Sandusky child molestation scandal.

The House members Wednesday released a letter saying the NCAA "sought to insert itself into a purely criminal matter that fell outside the scope of the NCAA's jurisdiction." They're urging the NCAA to remove all remaining sanctions.

The letter argues a full release of all documents would "provide all possible clarity to the public."

The NCAA in September announced it was ending the bowl ban and restoring football scholarships earlier than called for in the consent decree.

Sandusky was convicted of dozens of criminal counts but says he's innocent.
